Rather than throwing away obsolete electronics, leaving non-biodegradable and hazardous materials in landfills, many organizations specialize in recycling e-waste such as computers, batteries, and cell-phones. Look up local organizations accepting e-waste in your community.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Recycling e-waste can be a space saver for your organization by getting those old computers and printers out of the office. Encouraging e-waste recycling helps the environment while showing consumers your organization’s sustainability efforts.
For New Orleans
Lowering the amount of e-waste in landfills and incinerators reduces waste and pollution by properly disposing of non-biodegradable and hazardous materials appropriately.
