What is Liability Reduction?
The National Safety Council estimates that more than 500 million PCs get relegated to scrap in the U.S. every year, and the volume keeps increasing dramatically.
That’s bad news for the environment. The components in old computers contain hazardous amounts of toxic heavy metals, including lead, cadmium and mercury. While this won’t affect the person working on the PC, it can cause huge problems if the computer is discarded and sent to a landfill, where the toxins can seep into the ground.
Recycling your equipment with Great Lakes Electronics is a much better option. You can reduce any possible liability from discarding your old equipment if you do it in a responsible manner – through recycling.
We Maintain a Zero Landfill Policy
We know how critical it is to our environment and our future to prevent used equipment from filling up our landfills and incinerators. Your company’s old computers can turn into an environmental liability.
It doesn’t have to be that way…
We can recover raw materials for reuse, then secure remaining scraps to make sure they get properly recycled.
At Great Lakes Electronics, we help you turn those liabilities into assets with e-waste liability reduction!
