In November we are reminded to be thankful. At IT Radix, we’re thankful for our planet and feel it’s important for everyone to find ways to give back to it. One way you can contribute is by recycling your electronic waste. Here are a few e-waste recycling benefits:
- Machines can be recycled and used for new parts, eliminating the need for mining for materials such as copper, aluminum, and steel.
- Harmful materials are kept out of the environment (e.g., fluorescent light bulbs contain toxic mercury that can leach into waterways when thrown into a landfill).
- Reduced business costs! Most states now have incentivized ewaste recycling by bumping up the cost of dumping.
IT Radix makes electronic waste recycling easy. Drop off your old phone, computer, server, etc., and we will safely recycle it for you. Mother nature will thank you.
