Great leaps in technology have led to companies and consumers replacing and discarding old electronics that are quickly outdated within a year or two. It is a tremendous challenge to prevent these obsolete electronics from reaching landfills, where hazardous materials such as lead (found in TVs or monitors) or mercury (common in motherboard components) can negatively affect our soil and drinking water and, in turn, ourselves. Moreover, although new technology greatly enhances our lives, producing vast amounts of plastic and metal to manufacture it places a great toll on our environment, a cost that we will need to pay for in the health of our future generations.
In 1992, the EPA banned landfill dumping of CRTs, and since then many state and local regulatory agencies have continued to closely monitor the disposal of electronic waste. The government also enforces heavy fines to hazardous e-waste generators who violate the laws and regulations regarding proper disposal.
As an experienced leader in e-waste recycling, Lynswell Technologies offers a solution to both the toll placed on our environment, and to e-waste generators. Our company closely follows the strict guidelines of state and local regulators, while remaining innovative and, most importantly, environmentally friendly in our company’s methodology.
