What is E-Waste?
Electronic waste, or e-waste, is a growing environmental issue. Electronic items contain many hazardous materials including lead, mercury and cadmium, which can be harmful to those who come in contact with it. If these items are not disposed of properly the dangerous substances inside them can seep into the ground, contaminating the water supply and surrounding area. This is particularly important in Hesperia where our drinking water is pumped directly from the ground.
The hazardous materials that these items release have caused the State of California to prohibit these items in landfills. Instead, e-waste must be given to licensed hazardous disposal companies that provide environmentally responsible e-waste solutions for government agencies, corporations, health care organizations and other waste handlers nationwide.
E-Waste is any consumer electronic equipment that has reached its end-of-life or end-of-usage; whether in full or non-working condition. It includes most electronics or electric appliances with a cord or circuit board such as: Computer Monitors, Television sets, PC Systems, Printers, Laptops, Copiers, Scanners, Fax Machines, Toner Cartridges, UPS and PDAs, Power Supplies, Main Frame Units, Networking Equipment, Mother Board Systems, VCR/VCD/DVD Players, Home Entertainment Systems, Landline and Cellular Phones and Small Portable Devices. There is a $5.00 service fee for Microwave Ovens. Refrigerators, Washer and Dryers, Fluorescent Light Bulbs and Household Batteries will not be accepted.
