Why wouldn’t you Recycle!
Computer recycling London is a big problem for the government and the environment, which is why the government in 2007 instigated a WEEE (Waste Electrical Equipment Directive) programme that has put legislations in place to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment that ends up in landfills. This programme is about encouraging people to reduce, reuse, recycle and recover. It also puts ownership on people and businesses to make sure they comply with the regulations imposed or risk being held responsible if the guidelines are not followed.
Why recycle computers?
This seems a strange question as why wouldn’t you recycle! When you dispose of a computer or any electronic equipment in your general rubbish the only place it will end up is in the local landfill. Computers and most electronic and electrical goods contain hazardous materials and materials that are not biodegradable.
Today we live in a disposable world, it is all too easy to buy items then dispose of them without thinking where they end up once we have thrown them away. Many people today would not even think about repairing an item, they just think oh we can buy that again and they do.
