Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing segments of our nation's waste stream. E-waste, as it is commonly known, is the name for electronic products nearing the end of their "useful life." Computers, copiers, digital cameras, fax machines and phones are the most common business types of e-waste. A growing need for businesses of all sizes is the ability to responsibly recycle (e-cycle) electronic waste.
E-cycle Your E-waste
The EPA reports that Americans trash two million tons of unwanted electronics each year, which represents six times the amount they recycle. Improperly handled e-waste has the potential to leak hazardous substances such as lead, cadmium, beryllium and other contaminants into surrounding ecosystems.
Many electronic products can be reused, refurbished or recycled, but most users do not know how. Balcones Resources can assist with your e-cycle needs.
E-cycle events are a great perk for your multi-tenant facility, organization or community. Balcones Resources can help you host a collection event where individuals can bring outdated and unwanted electronics for responsible recycling. Contact us to learn more about organizing your own e-cycle event.
Do you have hard drives that have sensitive information on them? Hard drives can store as much information as 10 tractor trailer loads of paper. Let our team at Balcones responsibly destroy your hard drives and provide you with a certificate of destruction.
