Why is it so important to recycle electronics?

damaged computerBesides the fact that there are state electronics recycling laws that prohibit throwing electronics out in the trash, there are other reasons to recycle those old electronics as well! An article titled “Importance of Recycling Electronics” posted on explains some of those reasons.

The article states that electronics may contain valuable resources that can be reused. The more resources that we can reuse means the less that we have to manufacture. Recycling electronics also means that we don’t have to fill landfills with unnecessary trash. All of this can lessen environmental damage!
