An Important Note from Waste Management (FIWMD)

E-Waste, or electronic waste, describes end-of-life electrical goods such as computers, televisions, printers, mobile phones, etc. According to recent EPA statistics, Americans get rid of 142,000 computers and over 416,000 mobile devices every day. 40% of these items are recycled, but the rest pile up and cause environmental damage by leaking lead, cadmium, mercury and other hazardous wastes.

FIWMD passes along the $25 cost of discarding electronic waste to our customers. Extend the life of our planet by recycling your devices where you purchased them.
