The significant drawback of electronics becoming an increasingly part of our everyday life is disposal of electronic devices. This waste is often toxic and the responsible environmental practices call for certain procedures to be followed. If your device is still working, you should consider donating it to an organization that will make it available for people who may have a need for it. If you do recycle, make sure that the service is reliable and you know that they follow all the regulations. Local services are likely available in your area.
- If your device is still working, look for a company that can donate it to someone who is less fortunate.
- Find a recycler near you that has certifications and knows how to recycle electronics according to the standards that have been set by local government.
- If you are a business, make sure you have a recycling policy for your workplace that includes how to recycle electronic waste.
