Do you have a TV or computer that is old, dead or you just plain need to get rid of? If you are like me then you have been wondering where to take them since the recycling centers quit accepting them.
The good news is that I just found http://www.e-wastes.com/ a local business in Lynnwood that will recycle and dispose of your televisions and computers for FREE!
Most people don’t realize that old electronics are actually full of toxins and heavy metals such as barium, beryllium, cadmium, hexavelent chromium, lead, mercury, phosphorus, and PCBs, that are horrible for people and the environment. Burning them or throwing them out in a ditch is definitely not the responsible way to get rid of them.
There are several other places across Snohomish county that you can recycle your old TVs and computers. Take a look at http://www.ecyclewashington.org/ where you can search for different locations where you can recycle or dispose of your old electronics and other hazardous household wastes.
If you have computers that still work, you may want to look at donating them to The World Computer Exchange that refurbishes some computers and puts them back to good use.
In any case, whatever you do, there is no reason to dump TVs alongside the road. Take your used and dead computer and televisions to a recycling and disposal center to keep Snohomish county and all of Puget Sound clean!
