RECYCLE ELECTRONICS & INK CARTRIDGES

 

Electronics

Did you know?

  • Electronic devices contain metals (like copper, gold, tantalum...) that can be reused to make new devices, hence saving energy, reducing pollution, and protecting the earth's natural resources by not mining for virgin ore to create new metals.

  • Electronic devices contain toxic substances (lead, mercury...) that will end up in landfill if not properly disposed of. 

  • Some of your old devices can be fixed and reused. Reusing old devices allows to lower the impact of manufacturing new ones.
