With an ever-increasing demand for new electronic gadgets, Americans are storing or discarding millions of tons of obsolete electronic items. Recent estimates indicate that we recycle less than 10 percent of all our unwanted electronic products, which includes computers, televisions, and cell phones, to name just a few.
Thanks to collaborative efforts of AE COMPUTERS, LTD and partner organizations, we have tremendous opportunities to reuse and recycle this equipment. What’s more, as the demand for new products grows, we have even greater opportunities to influence not only their environmentally sound design, but also to get smart about buying and using products that are better for the environment. It’s a fact: The environmentally smart design and purchase of new electronic products combined with the reuse and recycling of old ones, saves energy and uses resources more efficiently.
