E-Cycling

Electronic Recycling or E-cycling waste is growing exponentially. The life expectancy of an I-Pod is two years, cell phones and dvd players are four years. People use a television for an average of two years before replacing it. People generally upgrade their computer components every three years and printers every five years. It is critical that e-waste is disposed of properly ensuring hazardous materials are handled correctly and landfill space is preserved. Please support E-cycling in our community.
