As per Jay Katari research It’s True Fact even though nearly all textiles are recyclable, only about 15% of the 14.3 million tons of textile waste generated in the U.S. every year gets recycled.
Few decades ago the “problem” of electronics ending up in the landfills was not really a big deal. But as consumer electronics improve and become more inexpensive, the need to upgrade to the next level and buy the newest iPhone 7s, IPAD, TAB and MAC PRO of example, is all overwhelming. As millions of consumers and office workers throw away older computers, printers and mobile devices into the trash – our landfills literally become clobbered with non-degradable devices. And guess what; most of these old devices can be recycled.
The problem is that many of us have no idea what to do with our old mobile phones, computers, printers and other electronics. So, here are some tips on how to find organizations to help you recycle your electronics:
Jay Katari said Bring It to us. We are nonprofit organizations and local communities offer options to help you recycle old electronics. The things we recycle are computers, laptops, monitors (flat screen and CRT), televisions (for a fee), financial/bank and medical equipment, rechargeable batteries, telephones (systems), cell phones, electronic circuit boards and components and more. Clothing and textiles are nearly 100% recyclable. More and more people are recycling their old attire, whether it’s through donation, thrift store shopping.
