Monitor Recycling Can Get the Lead Out

January 11, 2017.

Now that you’re ready to take the plunge again and buy a new computer, do you know what to do with your current equipment? Not sure how to recycle your computer monitor?

It used to be a simple thing to upgrade our electronic devices. Whenever the latest model computer or cell phone came out, for instance, we could always find someone who could use our older model. There were schools, shelters and charities to whom you could donate your outdated devices.

Nowadays, there are more electronic devices relegated to the scrap heap than ever before, and more frequently. Consequently, the market for older electronics is tighter and more discriminating. At the same time, there are numerous materials in those old electronics that threaten the environment if they are disposed of improperly.

Jiffy Junk Does Responsible Monitor Recycling

All electronic devices are manufactured with a variety of materials, some of which are toxic, many of which are recyclable, and all of which need special considerations regarding proper disposal. The importance of recycling is greater than ever, given the scarcity of demand for legacy equipment. Technology is rendering our old devices obsolete so quickly that the older equipment just isn’t easy to pass on to someone else anymore.

The good news is that ethical recycling of computer monitors allows for re-use of some very expensive – and potentially harmful – materials. The circuit boards in your old monitor contain lead, cadmium, mercury and other elements that are hazardous to the environment. Local and federal legislation mandate how these materials are to be disposed of, which can be onerous for the average consumer to follow.

We at Jiffy Junk share our Long Island neighbors’ commitment to the environment, and to making the most of our precious resources. Recycling helps reduce manufacturing costs for electronic devices, as well as the need for the costly mining of those materials for next-generation devices.
