Why Recycle Cell Phones
Cell phones, like all pieces of electronic equipment, have hazardous materials in them such as lead, cadmium, and mercury. They can not be thrown in the trash. If thrown away and emptied into the landfill, they would leak these hazardous materials, thus tainting our drinking water and harming the environment.
Why Recycle Inkjet Cartridges
Over 13 cartridges are discarded in the U.S. every second, according to CartridgeFundraising.com. That's hundreds of millions of cartridges that end up in landfills every year, made with plastics that can take at least 1,000 years to decompose.
