Electronic waste is a growing concern that is exacerbated by our fast-paced consumer cycle and product innovation. Cadmium, Mercury, Lead, Americium, Arsenic, Beryllium Oxide, and Flame Retardants are just a few hazardous materials commonly found in e-waste. It is vital that these harmful elements stay out of landfills where they contaminate ground water and release toxic chemicals into the atmosphere.
Comprenew holds the highest certifications for electronics recycling and data security in compliance with state, federal and international laws. You can trust us to protect your data and prevent your electronic waste from being dumped in a landfill.
