The amount of electronic media in the market has drastically increased over the last several decades. Both homes and the workplace are becoming heavily reliant on computers, cell phones, tablets, and other electronics. As new versions or models are purchased, the older versions must be properly discarded.
Keeping these items at your home or office can put your business at risk, as many electronic products store your information. Throwing them away also puts you at risk and is illegal in the state of California for several environmental reasons. Learn more about how PROSHRED® San Diego can help you with a professional electronics recycling service.
Why Using an Electronics Recycling Company is a Must
Some may view electronics recycling as unimportant or an unnecessary mess, but there are several distinct reasons your business should use an electronics recycling company. First and foremost, it is the law. Additionally, the chemicals and materials electronic devices are made of can cause great harm when these items are placed in landfills.
Heavy metals and toxic chemicals such as mercury, bromine, lead, and cadmium will negatively affect the surrounding environment and community. Protect your health and the health of those around you by recycling your electronics.
California Electronic Waste Recycling Act (EWRA)
Founded in 2003, the California Electronic Waste Recycling Act makes it illegal to throw away electronic devices. Those that are found placing electronic equipment in the trash, and ultimately landfills will face large fines of thousands of dollars. The amount of the fine your business experiences will vary depending on your violation and the length of the violation.
This law and its penalties were established to help business owners responsibly take the needed steps to have their electronic waste recycled properly.
