How to Recycle Electronics and small appliances.
Over 1,000 materials, including chlorinated solvents, brominates flame retardants, PVC, heavy metals, plastics and gases, are used to make electronic products and their components—semiconductor chips, circuit boards, and disk drives. A CRT monitor can contains between four and eight pounds of lead alone. Big screen TVs contain even more than that. Flat panel TVs and monitors contain less lead, but use mercury lamps. About 40% of the heavy metals, including lead, mercury and cadmium, in landfills come from electronic equipment discards. These toxicants are released during the production, use and disposal of electronic products, with the greatest impact at end-of-life. Harmful chemicals released from incinerators and leached from landfills contaminate air and groundwater. The burning of plastics at the waste stage releases dioxins and furans, known developmental and reproductive toxins which persist in the environment and concentrate up the food-chain. White County Recycling takes any TV, CPU, monitor, printers and all small appliances such as sweepers, coffee makers, phones, radios and etc. So, please bring all electronics to White County Recycling Center for proper recycling. Limit 3 electronic devices per White County residence.
