What is e-scrap?
It’s an informal name for electronics that are no longer needed or useful.
We’re now accepting e-scrap!
E-waste is a growing problem which can be solved by recycling. Many electronics are made up of various materials that can be recycled. Dismantling end-of-life electronics such as computers and recycling the various materials in them promotes the conservation of undamaged natural resources. Also, it helps in the prevention of water and air pollution that is brought about by hazardous disposal. In addition, it also helps in reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced as a result of the manufacture of new electronics.
- E-waste contains valuable, recoverable materials such as aluminum, copper, gold, silver, plastics, and ferrous metals.
- E-waste also contains toxic and hazardous materials including mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium, chromium, and chemical flame retardants, which have the potential to leach into our soil and water.
