By Anne | Jun 30, 2015 | in

The fast pace of technological change coupled with the short lifespan of modern consumer goods leaves many of us with obsolete electronics. The components of these products often contain hazardous contaminants such as lead, cadmium, mercury and brominated flame retardants which pose a great deal of risk to human health and the environment when this material is sent to landfills. It’s paramount that as citizens of the world, we consume, but especially dispose of, our consumer goods responsibly.

Since 2010, local e-cyler, MetalWave, has been serving businesses in New England and beyond with transparent, domestic, and cost-effective end-of-life recycling services for a variety of e-waste.
