Did you know? 

Electronics contain a host of hazardous substances. Even small amounts of these toxics can be dangerous if released into the air, water, and soil. Electronics recycling protects our health and environment by keeping these substances out of our landfills and incinerators. According to the U.S. EPA, 40 percent of lead and 70 percent of other toxics found in landfills – including mercury, cadmium and polybrominated flame retardants - are from electronics.
