Pick your e-waste program carefully!

July 21, 2015

BN-IF828_sheger_P_20150504133020If you are like most enviro-friendly Americans, you probably do your part to help reduce the amount of toxics that end up in the environment by recycling your plastics, metals and e-waste. You may even take it a step further and take various other measures such as riding the bus or biking to work, to reduce your carbon footprint.

Congratulations on all your great efforts, but do you know where your recyclables end up once you send them to your recycling program? Like many, you could be thinking that you’re doing the right thing, when your e-waste could end up on a ship.

According to New York Times News Service (NYTNS), the United Nations Environment Program stated that electronic waste or e-waste had become the “fastest growing waste stream in the world.”

Worldwide, the health of 100 million people is threatened by toxic e-waste, said Blacksmith Institution, a non-profit that focuses on solving pollution problems.

Recycling is a great effort, but it is also vital to make sure that your recycling program is a “responsible processor.”

Programs, such as the Planet Green Recycle fundraising program, do much more than passing the load of e-waste to unverified operators. Instead, when you send us your empty ink cartridges and e-waste, we remanufacture your cartridges in our 30,000 square foot facility and send your e-waste such as cell phones, phone cords, old video games, etc. to companies who properly dispose of the items and are E-Stewards or R-2 certified.

We don’t want to waste your efforts, so in addition to receiving a check for your items, we make sure that we minimize the release of toxic e-waste into the environment.



Start raising funds for your cause!
