Electronics Recycling

Electronics recycling includes everything from small devices such as cell phones and digital cameras to large devices such as televisions and desktop computers. It is illegal to discard of electronic waste in the trash.  Most computer monitors and televisions contain about five pounds of lead. Computers also contain other elements that, if improperly disposed of, can be environmental hazards (including metals and rechargeable batteries).
