Electronics Recycling Brisbane Services By All Green
According to Environmental Protection Agency, the use of electronics has grown dramatically for the past two decades. It means there has been an increasing number of electronic products being produced, used, and discarded. Yearly, a massive volume of electronic devices is thrown away. It has led to the drive of preventing those old computers, mobile phones, printers, monitors, and other devices from penetrating the landfill spaces. To realize this goal, All Green Recycling has offered Electronics Recycling Brisbane Services in California.
EPA has given some figures related to old and obsolete electronics in the U.S. By recycling about one million old laptop computers; we can save energy that over 3,500 US homes can use up in a year. The use of hazardous metals in producing cellular phones has been alarming. To produce one million mobile phones, a particular manufacturer needs 772 pounds of silver, 35 thousand pounds of copper, 33 pounds of palladium, and 75 pounds of gold. Therefore, it’s so risky for this planet if the old computer-run gadgets and devices are not recycled properly.
It is a small city in San Mateo County. It is particularly located in the lower part of San Bruno Mountain on the northeastern edge of South San Francisco, on the southern border of San Francisco, and just near the San Francisco International Airport. In 2010, the residents here were 4,282.
The name of this city is known as “The City of Stars” because there has been a holiday tradition that was celebrated more than 65 years ago. During Christmas season, the homes and business establishments in this area are shining due to large, illuminated stars being placed outside the buildings.
Old IT items have toxic chemicals such as mercury, lead, chromium, barium, and cadmium. Once you fail to dispose of your old electronic device/s correctly, those poisonous substances will be deposited into the landfill areas which will eventually affect the environment adversely. This is the reason why recycling plays a significant role in saving this planet. Studies have shown that 70% of heavy metals that are thrown away in the landfill spaces are electronics.
