As consumers upgrade more frequently to the latest electronic device, figuring out what do to with old devices can be challenging. Many of these electronics are thrown into the landfills. Unfortunately, electronics contain pollutants such as lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium, phosphorous and lithium. These toxic substances can get into the groundwater and soil and wreak havoc. That is why ACE Disposal has become a strong supporter of E-Recycling. The process includes dismantling the electronics, shredding hard drives and chips to protect personal information. Then salvage all other parts that can be reused such as: aluminum, steel, copper, tin and brass. Make sure that all personal information is deleted. Remove any batteries.
