The average user life of a computer or laptop may be slightly longer than your mobile phone, but it is still important to ensure the electronics are recycled in the correct ways. Reusing these devices by handing them down to a friend or family member is also a good way to cut down on waste. In 2009, 38% of US computer waste was recycled, with more and more being recycled each year.
Why it is a good idea to recycle your old computer
Electronics consist of a small percentage of landfill waste, but they can cause damage once ending up there. The hazardous waste, like heavy metals and carcinogens from your old computers can filter out into the landfill, atmosphere, and water supply. This can do an extreme amount of harm to the environment in the long run. Recycling your old computers can go a long way to preventing this.
