E-Waste Recycling

Today was a good day in the Roanoke Valley to recycle e-wasteewaste Despite the gloomy weather, the event was well attended.  It seemed organized and efficient. We pulled in, cycled in the line and waited only a few minutes for workers to unload our trunk.  Good-bye old outdated scanner. 

If you have old computers, TVs or other electronics seek out your community’s e-waste opportunities to recycle.  It keeps these items out of the landfills and out of potential deadly situations in unrestricted foreign back lots.  It is a common practice to smelt the heavy metals from the internal computer parts for scrap at the expense of worker safety, usually women and children.  This is a highly toxic and dangerous process for pennies in profit.  By recycling your ewaste you are doing the right thing.
