DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR OLD ELECTRONICS? 

WE WILL RECYCLE THEM!

 

ERC is a family-owned and operated recycling business. We are open to the public, welcoming residential and commercial recyclers.

Obsolete electronics are one of the fastest growing portions our country’s waste stream. In some areas e-waste is growing at about three times faster than any other type of waste. By recycling, we can lower the amount of waste and contribute to our environment by keeping toxic materials from contaminating the soil and leaching into our ground water. In 1998, over 112 million pounds of materials were recovered, and some reused, from recycled electronics including lead, steel, glass, and plastic.

Some old electronics can create environmental

hazards and legal liabilities if they are

disposed of improperly. With more than four

pounds of lead in many TV picture tubes

and computer monitors, along with other

potentially hazardous materials such as

mercury, chromium, and cadmium, electronics

call for special handling at the end of their lives.
