Why you should recycle with Cal-Green Recycling

Throwing away e-waste is illegal!

Did you know it is illegal to throw old electronics in the garbage? There are locations all over for you to properly dispose of your old, obsolete or broken electronics in a safe lawful manner.

In California alone, 6,000 computers become obsolete each day.

Only 10% are actually recycled. The vast majority of electronics are simply thrown away.

Rapid change in technology , low initial cost, and planned obsolescence have resulted in a fast-growing surplus of electronic waste around the globe.


CA law ab341

This law requires businesses to raise the bar on recycling. Businesses are now required to recycle 75% of their produced waste each year. Electronic waste counts as part of that 75%. Most people just don't know about it.

E-Waste is growing at two to three times the rate of any other waste sources.

Some Computer Components can be reused in assembling new computer products, while others are reduced to metals that can be reused in applications as varied as construction, flatware and jewelry.
