DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
WITH YOUR OLD ELECTRONICS?
WE WILL RECYCLE
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
improperly. With more than four
lead in many TV picture tubes
and computer monitors, along
potentially hazardous materials such as
chromium, and cadmium, electronics
call for special handling at the
end of their lives.
