What To Do With Electronic Waste
E-waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams on the planet. It encompasses electronic equipment from smartphones to refrigerators.
E-waste contains a laundry list of chemicals that are harmful to people and the environment, like: mercury, lead, beryllium, flame retardants, barium and lithium. When improperly disposed these chemicals end up in our soil, water, and air.
Electronic waste is also exported to some countries where laws on recycling are non-existent. According to estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO), as many as 18 million children and adolescents, and 12.9 million women, may be at risk from adverse health outcomes linked to e-waste recycling.
Fortunately, there are businesses in our area where our e-waste can be recycled for free. These include, Staples, Best Buy, and Good Will. Also Chester County Waste Authority accepts electronic waste at the Lanchester Landfill located at 7224 Division Highway, Narvon, PA
All these businesses have restrictions on types and amounts of e-waste. Go to their websites for details.
