Electronics recycling is very important and many people aren't aware of this. If you've found this site you are probably wondering how you can recycle your electronics, how you can find people that are looking to get there electronics collected, or why it's so important to recycle in the first place. Regardless of the reason you are all in the right place. Ecycler.ca provides a service that allows people like you to post items that need to be recycled for others to come and collect for recycling. You will also find a wide range of information that pertains to other items that can be recycled, and how to go about having it done.
To understand the importance of recycling a person must understand what's at stake. Quite simply it's the environment. Your very own environment is at stake if people continue to use up non renewable resources such as oil, coal, natural materials, and natural gas. Fossil fuels are not sustainable or renewable, meaning they are finite or they have an expiration date. With this in mind people are slowly realizing there are other items that aren't as plentiful, and for this reason they are recycling more because one day these natural resources will be exhausted as well. So, with that being said you can see the importance of electronics recycling as well as all other types of recycling.
You may not be aware but all types of electronics can be recycled. Now you must know that some of the older CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitors simply cannot be thrown in the trash without being properly recycled, and the reason is they all contain a certain amount of mercury. Over time this mercury will leak out and contaminate the soil of the landfills and seep into the ground water really creating havoc for the environment. So keep this in mind before throwing one of these in a dumpster. Whether it's a monitor, electronics in general or computer parts, all these items can be recycled and some will provide a dollar value for the person collecting these items for recyclables.
This is why the program at ecycler.ca is so important, because it puts people together, sometimes from the same communities, to get these items collected and properly recycled. There isn't another recycling program quite like it. If you have some electronics you would like to have recycled, all you have to do is sign in and post what you have. If you are a collector, all you have to do is sign in and check your status, if anyone within your chosen area has anything available for collection, you have the option to collect or pass it up so another collector can provide services.
This allows for a very simple recycling process that benefits the person discarding recyclables, the collector picking these items up for recycling and the environment in general. This is a win-win situation for everyone and the more people that use the program the more benefits are received as a result.
