Why Recycle Electronics?
Electronics contain valuable reusable materials including plastics, metals, circuit boards and glass. Recycling or reusing these materials reduces environmental impacts and economic costs by reducing the need for virgin materials in new electronics.
Computers, computer accessories, TVs, cell phones and other electronics also contain harmful materials. These include lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium, other heavy metals and chemical flame retardants. When improperly disposed of, these chemicals can leach into the environment, where they may affect human and environmental health. Improperly handled discarded electronics may also pose health risks to workers from companies that manage the electronics.
What should I, or my business, do with unwanted electronics?
You should reuse or recycle outdated, unwanted, or broken electronics at the ReStore! Under Wisconsin law, businesses and institutions must either recycle their electronics or manage them as hazardous waste. Wisconsin’s electronics recycling law bans many electronic devices, including printers, TVs and computers, from disposal in Wisconsin landfills or incinerators. Households must recycle these items instead of putting them in the trash.
