Have you ever thought about what happens to all of those old computers, televisions, cell phones, fax machines, printers and other electronics equipment that no longer works and has no financial value? This is commonly known as electronic waste (E-Waste). For the everyday consumers of these products, calling these items dangerous would not make sense. However, if you cracked back the case of these items, there are many metals and chemicals that if not disposed of correctly can become dangerous to humans. Rather than throwing your electronics into your local landfill in Upstate South Carolina, let our dedicated staff at Ever Green Environmental help you properly dispose and recycle your E-Waste.
Have you ever seen the inside of a computer? The Parts That Make Up Every Computer? If not, it is definitely a sight worth seeing. Within computers and other electronics, lots of metals, semimetals and chemical compounds are brought together in order for the item to function. Some of the common metals found in these electronics include nickel, mercury, copper, and small amounts of arsenic. While these metals are not harmful while enclosed within your electronics, they can become harmful if they are broken open and not disposed of properly.

In turn, E-Waste can have a negative effect on our environment and cause diseases such as cancer or diabetes.
