Electronic waste is the largest growing component of solid waste around the world due to the growth in demand for computers, laptops, tablets, cell phones and flat screen televisions.
Electronics contain valuable reusable materials including metals, plastics, and glass. By recycling these materials into new products, we lessen environmental and economic impacts.
Many electronics also have lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium and other heavy metals that can pollute our soil and water and pose human health hazards if disposed of improperly. The Electronic Waste Recycling provides nearby solutions for disposing of electronics as Wisconsin State Statutes require.
