Ceres Electronics Recycling
With innovative new technologies hitting the market at a never-before seen pace, the rate at which consumers are replacing their cell phones, laptops and digital cameras is at an all-time high. The technological boom has resulted in a common problem: what is a consumer to do with those old monitors, TVs, and electronics that are crowding the garage?
Many people don’t know that they can get rid of their obsolete technology without adding to the piles of junk in landfills. Aside from removing the dangerous contaminants that can leach into groundwater and soil you’re your old electronics, valuable copper, iron, and glass can be recovered and repurposed for use in newer machines. Common e-waste materials that can be recycled include scanners, cell phones, alarm clocks, computers, monitors, TVs, VCR’s and DVD players, stereo equipment, printers, and fax machines.
More information about local rules about reuses and recycling of ewaste is available at the Stanislaus County website at http://www.stancounty.com/er/e-waste-recycle.shtm.
While many landfills and recycling centers will accept e-waste drop offs, the Ceres Recycling Centre and American Recycling do not accept all e-waste items, nor do they collect from customers. There is, however, a more convenient option for residents of Ceres: CenCal Ewaste accepts a wide range of consumer electronics, computer components, and appliances for recycling, and will pick items up from your doorstep. Get on the green bandwagon, and get rid of those obsolete printers, fax machines, stereo equipment, and outdated digital toys responsibly.
