All of the components that we recycle are processed down to the basic commodities right here in North America at an environmentally-friendly electronics e-cycling facility. These facilities are specifically designed to efficiently break down electronic components into resources that can then be reused or redistributed with little or no impact on the environment.
According to the EPA:
More than 50 million computers are abandoned every year
More than 3,000 tons of electronics are discarded every day
80% of discarded electronics end up in a landfill
Only 5% of U.S. electronics recyclers refuse to export e-waste
Computers, monitors, and cell phones contain toxins, including lead and arsenic. Every day Americans dispose of 130,000 computers. Today, 23 cell phones are produced every second, and Americans discard more than 100 million cell phones per year. EDM Recycling is committed to helping improve the environment and preventing these electronics from ending up in landfills.
