    General Electronics Recycling

     

    Because of the shortening life spans of most electronic components whether it be computers and their peripherals, printer cartridges, or cell phones, it is becoming more and more important to recycle these items. Disposing of the increasingly large numbers of electronic devices, that is any home electronic device with circuitry, will take up precious landfill space and perhaps leach into the soil and groundwater some of the toxic chemicals that are contained in their components. The following sections provide links or information on how to properly handle electronics - Recycle them! For more specific information, visit NJDEP at www.nj.gov.
