Approximately 40 million metric tons of e-waste are disposed worldwide every year. This waste comes from TV’s, computers, printers, cell phones, and other technologies we use everyday. Many of these are put into landfills where they take up space and leak chemicals and heavy metals into the earth. These heavy metals include lead, mercury, and cadmium all of which are poisonous to humans. Without proper disposal these chemicals can work their way into the food chain and have negative effects on human health. Here at Triad we take all electronics so that they can be recycled properly.
