Today there are so many ways of recycling there is no need to throw most everything away. Most people think you can only recycle paper and plastics but there is an endless list of things you can recycle. One of these things is electronics. Most people just throw their old computers or cellphones away when there are ways to recycle them. A great website to find out how to recycle and why is http://www.nrdc.org/. Here it tells you the steps and benefits of recycling your electronics.
Some of these benefits are of course helping the environment. The lead, mercury, and cadmium in electronics can release hazardous toxins when disposed of incorrectly. Also when you throw away the valuable metals in phones like copper, gold, and silver it leads to useless mining for these metals.
recycle your electronics!
