Advances in technology for all electronic equipment, particularly computers, soon renders them obsolete. Given the sheer volume of obsolete electronics and the potentially hazardous materials they contain, consumers are strongly encouraged to seek environmentally safe recycling when their electronic equipment reaches the end of its useful life. Electronic equipment contains metals such as cadmium, lead, & mercury, that, if not properly managed or contained, can become hazardous wastes.
