Recycling often entails separating and melting down items for their precious metals. Although this is an important part of All Green Electronics Recycling’s complete circuit board recycling process we also take the prior step of trying to re-purpose and reuse working circuit boards. This can result in higher returns and a better use of the circuit board. Recycling your circuit boards with All Green Electronics Recycling signals to your customers and investors that you and your company are passionate about being a responsible part of your community.

HOW TO RECYCLE A CIRCUIT BOARD
There are plenty of reasons for the recycling of circuit boards. Doing so reduces landfill waste and conserves resources. The precious metals used in circuit boards can be recovered and reused. This further reduces the environmental impacts and energy demands that result from mining, manufacturing and transportation. Specifically, gold, copper and mercury mining and manufacturing can have devastating effects on the environment. Mercury and lead are used in the manufacturing process, which is commonly outsourced to third world countries. There are millions of people all around the world that are negatively affected by mercury mining processes. Recycling circuit boards reduces the demand for this toxic metal. Finally, toxic e-waste is often exported to developing countries where impoverished workers are forced to salvage these metals in unhealthy and unsafe ways that result in toxic wastelands.
Circuit Board Materials
Many of the materials used to make circuit boards can be recovered and recycled. This includes metals and plastics. Circuit boards contain different precious metals such as gold, silver, palladium and occasionally platinum. All circuit boards contain base metals such as tin, lead, iron, zinc, copper, nickel and aluminum. They also contain small amount of hazardous elements such as barium and beryllium. Finally, they contain polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a popular synthetic plastic.
Dangerous Materials in Circuit Boards
Circuit boards contain toxic metals, such as lead and hazardous materials like mercury and PVC. These have very negative effects on the environment and people. When these materials are placed in a landfill they deteriorate and release toxins that contaminate the soil, water and air (if burned). Mercury exposure causes physical damage to the body, including sense impairment and liver damage. Lead toxicity can cause irreversible neurological damage and renal disease. Finally, PVC contains substances known as phthalates that have been linked to cancer, kidney damage and liver damage. Responsibly recycling your circuit boards protects animals, people and the environment.
