The Importance Of Electronics Recycling

Before you dispose of your unwanted electronics, we ask that you consider recycling them instead. Here are four reasons why electronics recycling is important: 
1. Avoid Hazardous Chemical Leaks 

There are hazardous elements inside certain parts of electronic devices. If e-waste is not disposed of properly, it can have harmful effects to the environment, especially the air and water supply.

2. Conserve Natural Resources  

According to the EPA, recycling one million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by more than 3,500 US homes in a year. 


3. It’s Convenient 

Patriot Shredding has both drop off and pick up options available if you’re interested in recycling your unwanted electronics. Our e-waste recycling options are easy and convenient, so there’s really no reason not to. 


4. Protect Sensitive Information 

Sensitive information on old electronics creates a liability issue. By properly recycling your old devices, you’re ensuring that your information is destroyed.

Electronics recycling is such a small effort that makes a big difference. If you have any of the devices listed below that you wish to dispose of, Patriot Shredding is happy to take them off your hands.
