Computer Recycling Services
As our use of technology continues to grow each year, so does our need to recycle e-waste properly. According to a study done by the EPA, 60 million metric tons of electronic waste is improperly disposed of in landfills every year. This behavior puts our health and the health of our environment at serious risk. E-waste contains toxic substances, which can leak out and contaminate the surrounding environment for decades. Toxins like lead, mercury, chromium, and other contaminants are all commonly found in electronics.
Once these toxic substances seep into the ground underneath the landfills, the quality of life for residents in that area is likely to be negatively impacted. These toxic substances can cause cancer, reproductive disorders, and other serious health issues upon exposure. If that wasn’t enough, businesses responsible for excess pollution can face serious legal and financial consequences.
Examples of the e-Waste we recycle are:
- Mobile phones
- Office electronic equipment
- Keyboards & mice
- Servers and networking equipment
- Copy machines
- Printers and fax machines
- Business machines
- Telephone systems
- And much more!
Electronics Recycling in Atlanta
Green Junk Removal’s goal is to provide homes and businesses in Atlanta with environmentally friendly solutions for all types of unwanted electronics, including outdated computer components, unused or broken phones, and other office and IT equipment. Our team will ensure that your old computer monitors and hardware, TVs, fax machines, printers, household electronics, and other e-waste products are disposed of properly. Green Junk Removal offers an affordable way to scrap outdated electronics conveniently and securely.
If you need to get rid of your computer, the best thing to do is delete all of your personal information and bring it to a computer recycling center near you. Unfortunately, upwards of 75% of old consumer electronics are left in the garages, basements, and attics of homes due to a lack of accessible electronic recycling options. Green Junk Removal will collect, sort, and haul your old computers, monitors, and other computer equipment to a designated recycling center, saving you the hassle.
Even though that old computer monitor or broken laptop you have sitting in your closet might not be functional, some of the components that were used to build them can still be recovered. There’s no reason to leave these electronics to rot in your home when their components can be reused to make new products— minimizing the amount of raw materials that need to be extracted from the Earth. Recycling electronics not only conserves natural resources, it also reduces the amount of pollution being produced and saves energy.
