There’s an ecological cost to staying connected and entertained.
Computers, printers, televisions, cellphones, stereos, game systems and other electronics may contain lead, copper or other heavy metals or potentially toxic substances. When electronics have outlived their usefulness, it’s important to dispose of them properly rather than just toss them in the trash to be placed into landfills.
