Generally speaking, most folks are environment-conscious enough and seem to be eager to learn about the many ways of recycling electronics. Some people, however, are discouraged by the sheer number of recycling options available out there, which can make searching for an optimal solution like spotting a needle in the haystack. Fortunately, you can now easily find a local recycling solution thanks to the Earth911 Recycling Directory.
Corey Lambrecht, president of Earth911, says most people are responsible and know that dumping outdated consumer electronics in landfills pollutes our environment:
Consumers are looking for local and easy-to-access recycling programs for their electronics, because they know that even their most outdated gadgets don’t belong in the trash.
Searches on the website indicate 23 percent are for electronics. Their top 10 most-searched products follow items with high turnover and those related to technology trends, including televisions, computers, cell phones and CDs. Currently, the company even lists local sites for disposal of your dried out, needle dropping, Christmas tree.
Earth911, established in 1991, gathers, distributes and analyzes localized recycling information to assist manufacturers, organizations and consumers with product end-of-use solutions. It is the Official Green Media Partner of the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and can be found in Booth #25903.
