Do you have old electronics you don’t know what to do with? If so, it’s time to consider recycling your electronics with Federal Metals, where we pay for select electronics scrap.
If you’re wondering what benefits come from e-cycling, here are a few of the most important:
Get extra income and improve the local economy.
It’s great to have a little extra cash in hand and know that recycling helps create local jobs. Schools who recycle their old electronics also benefit from those supplemental funds.
Save energy and natural resources.
Did you know that 1 million recycled laptops alone could save the energy it takes to power 3,657 homes annually? Most materials in electronics are valuable metals that can be re-purposed to save limited natural resources.
Protect the environment and watershed.
Electronics that get thrown out and taken to landfills contain pollutants that harm drinking water supplies, soil, and air purity. Avoid adding lead, cadmium, mercury, and other harmful materials to the environment; take part in Calgary electronic recycling.
