Zero-Landfill / Zero-Export Computer and Electronics Recycling at Wolf Trap Saturday, April 25, 2009, 10 AM to 2 PM
Held at the Center for Education at Wolf Trap, 1645 Trap Rd.,
Each year an estimated 750,000 personal computers end up in landfills, and according to the USA Today, "The EPA estimates 60 million electronics products a year [are discarded], most of which are exported." One color computer monitor alone contains 6 1/2 pounds of lead and measurable amounts of cadmium, mercury, and other toxic metals.
PC Recycler, responsible for collecting and recycling the electronics, guarantees that every part of items dropped off will be recycled and nothing will be disposed of in a landfill. PC Recycler strategically and securely dismantles all recycled items and does not export electronics.
