Don’t Forget to Recycle Electronics During Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning your office means finally throwing away the stack of toner boxes near the copy machine, shredding the records that you don’t need to keep and getting rid of the ancient monitors lining your IT closet shelves. But, wait a second, what should you do with those monitors? Your office should always recycle electronics instead of tossing them in the trash.

Why Should You Recycle Electronics?

When it comes to recycling plastic bottles and paper boxes, most offices will take the time to sort them and place them in the recycling bin. When it comes to less convenient items, like electronics, it’s tempting to place them in the dumpster with everything else. However, it’s actually more important to take the extra time to properly recycle electronics than every plastic bottle in the bin. Electronics are filled with toxic and environmentally-hazardous chemicals like lead and arsenic. By placing electronics into a landfill, these chemicals will leak into the surrounding area and ecosystem.

How Can Your Office Recycle Electronics?

During spring cleaning, make sure that you keep all technology and electronic items that you need to dispose of grouped together. Once you know what you need to get rid of, contact an experienced technology recycling service provider like Teltek.
