E-Waste Recycling Matters in Dallas TX

Did you know that disposing of your electronic waste(e-waste) as ordinary trash is a violation of environmental protection law? Responsible recycling of your e-waste is not only abiding by the law, but it’s also good for the environment! As part of our commitment to protecting our environment and our community, Okon Recycling provides responsible e-waste recycling throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

What Is Electronic Waste?

When we refer to electronic waste, we’re talking about items that nearly every household has at this very moment. This includes electronic items such as computers, televisions, MP3 players, cell phones, cameras, and even electronic lab equipment! At some point, these electronic items reach the end of their useful life. What should be done with them at this point? They should be responsibly recycled, of course!

Responsible E-Waste Recycling

Electronic waste disposed of as ordinary trash may, unfortunately, end up in our landfills. Much of this electronic waste contains environmentally toxic metals such as lead, nickel, and mercury. These potentially hazardous materials can leach out of electronic products and contaminate the groundwater our community accesses. Recycling your e-waste responsibly has never been easier. As one of the many specialty recycling services we provide, the Okon Recycling team is deeply experienced in recycling a wide range of e-waste.
