SLC Green - Electronics Recycling
Electronics are one of the fastest growing waste streams in the United States. As technology improves, consumers are quickly upgrading their personal electronics.
While some unwanted electronics can be donated and reused, the best alternative for those that have reached the end of their useful life is to recycle them. Recycling keeps toxic materials out of our landfills and helps to conserve natural resources.
