Why it’s important to recycle electronics

Electronics recycling is important because it helps keep harmful toxins and materials out of landfills. When electronics are thrown away, they often end up in landfills where the toxic materials they contain can leak into the soil and water. This can contaminate our environment and pose a danger to both people and animals. Recycling electronics helps to prevent this pollution and protects our environment.
