We all know about reduce, reuse and recycle, but how many of us actually do, especially when it comes to our electronic equipment. Electronic waste if not disposed of correctly is extremely dangerous and can be harmful to our bodies due to the toxic component inside. These toxic components include: mercury, lead, lithium to name a few with the plastic containing polyvinyl chloride. These chemicals if exposed to the body can be extremely harmful and can cause many health problems including problems to the reproductive system and the nervous system.
Electronic waste that is not correctly disposed of in some cases ends up in poorer nations. These nations are victimized due to their poverty where they are paid virtually nothing to salvage what they can from this equipment, with many of the remains being dumped in waterways, farmlands or roadsides where it leeches its toxic chemicals.
Other computer parts and hardware can end up being burnt which in itself is highly toxic as the gases of mercury and lead end up being spread into the air space that are then breathed in by the locals.
Some people unfortunately just put PC recycling London in the too hard basket when it really does not need to be that difficult. If we can use a computer we can also find the best company to use to help us recycle this same product. PC recycling London is a system set up that allows people to recycle their old computers enabling them to be recycled or reused in the best possible way.
Many PC will be repaired and reused when recycled, while others will be broken down with all useable parts re-used. The benefit of using a PC recycling London Company is they are accountable for the recycling of each item, with records required for every stage of the recycling and re-using process enabling each part to be tracked and the companies environmental efforts measured and monitored.
