Many municipalities offer a form of recycling; including metal, paper and plastic recycling. However, few have the capacity to offer electronic and computer recycling as part of their overall recycling program. E-waste is one of the fastest growing segments of the solid waste stream. Most municipalities offer some form of recycling. It is imperative that more cities start engaging in municipal electronics recycling

The E-Waste Problem and the Benefits of Municipal Electronics Recycling
Electronic and computer waste is not only becoming a growing issue, often times they contain, recoverable metals. To conserve natural resources and protect the environment, municipalities and other government agencies can recycle these products so that the resources inside of them are refurbished and reused.


These are a few of the reasons why municipality and government agencies should recycle:

Conserving Natural Resources – Valuable materials from electronics can be recovered and refurbished. By conserving natural resources, your municipality contributes to saving energy, minimizing pollution and reducing greenhouse gases.
Less Landfill Space - By using municipal computer recycling, local governments will reduce waste going into the local landfills and conserve land.
Creates Jobs – Jobs are created when a team is assigned to oversee and manage the electronics being recycled. Professional recyclers and refurbishing companies will also see additional new jobs; boosting the local market.
Protecting Surroundings - Recycling electronics ensures that chemicals such as mercury and lead are not leaking and contaminating the soil from landfills.
