Why is it important to recycle electronics?

Unwanted and end-of-life electronics are not trash, and we all have a role to play in ensuring these old electronics including mobile phones, tablets and chargers don’t end up in landfills. Much of the plastic and metal in these devices can be reclaimed and reintroduced into the manufacturing supply chain to be used to produce new products. Many older electronics contain substances of concern that, if not handled properly, could have negative environmental impacts in addition to causing health and safety issues.

Technology advances fast, but we only get one planet. Help us preserve it and extend nature’s warranty. Recycle your small electronics in an an e-waste smartbin near you.

Solving the climate crisis is within our grasp, but we need people like you to stand up and act.
