What Happens to Recycled Electronics

All recycled electronics are processed at a secure demanufacturing facility by our partner, Dynamic Lifecycle Innovations. The Agency recycles electronics because of the hazardous materials contained in the electronics - lead, mercury, cadmium, nickel, chromium, lithium, and PCBs, among others. Electronics also contain many materials made from natural resources, some of which are not renewable and will be depleted over time. By recycling electronics, those valuable natural resources are used to make new products, water pollution is reduced, and energy is saved in the extraction and manufacturing processes.
