Why Recycle

Why You Should eRecycle

Obsolete electronics, including cellphones, computers, household appliances, televisions and monitors make up the fastest growing segment of the municipal waste stream in the United States.

  • Electronic waste contains many valuable materials including copper, aluminum, gold, silver and palladium, as well as plastics and ferrous metals.
  • It also contains many toxic and hazardous materials such as chemical flame retardants, lead, mercury, beryllium, cadmium, and other heavy metals that can harm the environment and human health if managed improperly.
  • Sensitive data can be found in many outdated electronics, including smartphones and photocopiers that double as document scanners. If not handled properly, these items can create data breaches and liability concerns for individuals and businesses.

The good news is this: Through our national network of nonprofit partners, CyclePoint® can divert those materials from landfills and relieve your data security concerns.
