Why should I recycle my computer?
The rate of new technology in the last 20 years has created millions of obsolete computers and other electronics (e-waste). Because these devices often contain contaminants such as lead and mercury, Colorado law requires that residential and business electronics recycle all electronics. Dumping electronics in landfills has been banned in Colorado. Business are prohibited from dumping electronics by EPA regulation.
In addition, e-waste contain materials (such as metals and engineered plastics) which require considerable energy to process and manufacture. These materials can be recovered through recycling, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions and saving energy and resources by extracting fewer raw materials.
The continued high demand for a cheaper, and faster computer has given the ability to upgrade every 2-3 years. This, creating a whole lot of unwanted older computers and electronic equipment. With businesses and home users needing the newest computer to run the latest games and software, this creates a growing need for proper disposal of obsolete equipment. Past estimates have shown that as low as 10% of obsolete computers have been properly recycled. The rest have ended up in landfills, storage, burned in incinerators, and in third world counties that have no modern means or education to properly handle the material. This material often ending up in untrained hands to be taken apart under hazardous conditions.
To get control of e-waste, many states have begun enforcing regulations for electronics that could cost a violator thousands of dollars for each device disposed of improperly. Even if you were being a kind and gave your computer to charity or to a friend, you could still be held responsible if your device ends up in a landfill.
