Removing unwanted electronics from your home requires a little finesse. Most electronically operated items such as TVs, cell phones, and computers are small enough that they can easily be thrown away along with your regular weekly trash. However, electronics must be disposed of in a careful manner and are not permitted items for curbside collection. Not your average garbage, electronic units must be properly recycled to protect our environment and reduce the risk of injury or illness. When most families want to replace outdated electronics with newer versions, they want them gone right away, but they are uncertain where to take them.

That’s where hiring a leading Vancouver junk removal company comes in.

Why is Electronics Recycling Necessary?
There are a number of reasons why electronics can’t be disposed of along with your regular weekly trash for curbside collection.
- Electronic items contain harmful chemicals.
In order for electronic equipment such as TVs, radios, and cell phones to function, they must be outfitted with chemicals such as cadmium, beryllium, mercury, lead, and brominated flame retardants. While these chemicals are housed appropriately to use the devices in a home setting, once deposited in a garbage dump or landfill, they become exposed to rain and groundwater which causes contamination of the water supply and soil. To protect our earth and those who live on it, it is essential that items containing chemicals be disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
- Our soil and water can become contaminated by electronics disposed of inappropriately.
When electronic items sit on the ground or in landfills, rain water and moisture in the earth causes chemicals to leach out of them. This means that the soil and water supply is contaminated. Since groundwater often runs into the drinking water supply, illness, injury, and even death can occur.
- Landfills are not appropriate repositories for electronics.
Landfills are the ideal breeding ground for groundwater and dirt contamination.
