About Recycling Your Product

Why Recycle?
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.

Where to Recycle
We are seriously concerned about environmental protection, and we hope that you share our concern as well. Many states and municipalities have established guidelines for disposal, reuse and recycling of computer equipments.
