WHY RECYCLE ELECTRONICS?

Electronics contain valuable metals and components that can be reused again in another manufacturing process. Many environmentally harmful chemicals and elements exist in electronics such as cadmium, lead, hexavalent chromium, mercury, chromium, barium, beryllium and brominated flame-retardant materials to name a few. These components can pollute water and air resources without proper disposal or recycling.

One of the fastest growing [hazardous] waste streams is e-waste such as computers, television sets and mobile cell phones. When e-waste crosses borders illegally and is indiscriminately dumped, or dismantled in unsound conditions, serious damage to human health and pollution of water, air and soil is often the result. While Electronic waste is a direct consequence of our ongoing desire to communicate from anywhere, connect more often and compute from home, office or on the road. Add an increasing demand for electronic gaming, higher definition televisions or smart cars and the result is a catastrophic accumulation of e-waste, now and into the future. An ongoing effort to address this exponentially growing problem is essential.
Electronic waste is a serious issue and it should not be going to the local landfill, fly by night and or data mining operations. Electronics should always be recycled and choosing a responsible operation that provides complete accountability is essential.

USA Recycling Centers only uses refiners and processors that adhere to the most stringent industry standards (e-stewards, R2, NAID, ISO 14001) keeping  the global environmental impact to a minimum as well as complete accountability through total downstream monitoring and disposition of all materials going through our facilities.

“Hazardous waste is threatening human health and the environment globally. Much of it is being exported to other countries, often to developing nations.”

Excerpt from Basel Convention November 2009 Press Advisory:

E-Waste Statistics

Only 12.5% of e-waste is recycled, according to the EPA.

The United States produces more e-waste annually than any other country. The amount of electronics that Americans throw away every year? 9.4 million tons.

It is estimated that only 29% of global e-waste is handled via the accepted best practice recycling channels.

We encourage all businesses and consumers to join USARC’s efforts to reduce the harmful effects of e-waste.
