Items that can be dropped off: eWaste is a popular informal name for consumer and business electronic equipment that has reached the end of its useful life. Over 130 million mobile phones alone were discarded in 2005. The National Safety Council projects that nearly 250 million computers will become obsolete in the next 5 years, amounting to an estimated 3.2 million tons of eWaste. Researchers have estimated that nearly 75 percent of eWaste is in storage. We are providing an opportunity for FREE, safe and environmentally sound and friendly disposal and recycling.
