WHAT IS ELECTRONIC WASTE?
Appliances with screens like monitors, televisions, laptops, tablets and notebooks.
Electronic waste includes all discarded and junk electric appliances, equipment and devices that have no further use or have been abandoned by their owners for new and more efficient versions. Most household or business items powered by electricity or batteries with circuits and electrical components are considered e-waste. There are six broad categories of e-waste:
Printing and copying machines.
Small equipment includes vacuum cleaners, ventilation equipment, kitchen appliances like toasters, electric kettles, personal items like electric shavers, scales, calculators, radio sets, video cameras, electrical and electronic toys, tools, devices and other monitoring equipment and instruments.
Small IT and telecommunication equipment include mobile phones, GPS devices, routers, personal computers, printers and telephones.
These items tend to collect and clutter the corner of our homes and create an unsightly mess. Moreover, it is important to note that all electronic equipment comprises several components, such as plastics and all kinds of metals. If discarded improperly, these components can pollute and become hazardous to the environment and humans when dumped in landfills or incinerated along with other trash. That's where JLM can help out! Call us in Hagersville and Waterford to safely dispose of and recycle all your unused electronic waste items in a way that is not harmful to you and the environment.
WHAT ARE FERROUS METALS?
All ferrous metals are composed of iron. These metals, like steel, stainless steel and cast iron, are known for their strength and durability and are widely used for industrial and architectural constructions as well as a number of consumer goods and products. You can tell if an item contains ferrous metals by sticking a magnet to it. If the magnet sticks, the metal contains iron and is thus ferrous. If the magnet does not stick, it is most likely non-ferrous.
BENEFITS OF OUR E-WASTE SERVICES?
Most components and metals like steel, glass, copper, aluminum and plastics used in electronics can be salvaged, treated for reuse and recycled to manufacture other items. It is best to call our experts to dispose of your electronic products and avoid any potential risks to your health and the environment. The key benefits of our electronic waste services include:
Protect the environment: Proper recycling and disposal of e-waste can keep several harmful and toxic materials like plastics, mercury, lead, arsenic and cadmium away from waterways, landfills and the environment. These can become even more dangerous toxins and gases upon contact with air or fire, which are at the root of congenital anomalies and cancers.
Conserve resources and support non-renewable recycling: Dumping e-waste in landfills means more metals and non-renewable resources must be dug up, mined and processed to match the growing demand for new devices and appliances. Our services ensure that resources and materials used in old products are reused to make new products to conserve energy and resources and reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
Helps to reduce business costs and shows commitment to community goals: Avoiding high expenses from environmental and health risks, recycling can also help your company's commitment to social, environmental and community values.
