0400The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states electronic waste is now the fastest growing segment of our nation's garbage production. There are ways that each and every one of us can turn this around -- by recycling! Electronic waste, including computers and TVs, contain toxic materials such as lead, chromium, cadmium, mercury, beryllium, nickel, zinc and other potentially harmful chemicals. The EPA warns when electronics that contain these materials are not recycled or are not disposed of properly, the hazardous chemicals can contaminate the ground water and present additional environmental concerns.
