Most electronic devices and its accessories contain a variety of materials, including metals (gold, silver and palladium) base metals (copper and steel), and plastics. All of these elements require energy to extract and manufacture. These elements can be recovered from recycling.
Recycling your waste electronics saves resources and protects the Earth because new metals don't have to be mined. In addition, some electronic products contain high enough levels of certain materials, such as lead, that render them hazardous waste when disposed. Recycling will keep dangerous materials out of landfills and incinerators.
