Most electronics contain hazardous or toxic materials which can cause an environmental problem if discarded in the trash. Safely recycling and reusing electronics helps keep substances like lead and mercury from harming people or the environment. To manage your electronics responsibly, take advantage of take-back, reuse, and recycling programs offered by local retailers, efficiency programs, and others.
