The Benefits of Electronics Recycling Mississauga
October 02, 2015

 Electronics recycling Mississauga allows you to put electronic waste into good use by ensuring it is reused rather than disposed. If you have an old gramophone, cell-phone, stereo TV, computer or DVD player that you no longer use, you can simply make some cash from it by offering it for recycling at Alnor industries.

Alnor has been trusted for almost four decades to purvey scrap metal in Mississauga, recycling both non-ferrous and ferrous scrap items. These include cables, catalytic converters, insulated wires, and e-waste. Under normal circumstances, these items normally end up in earth fills where they are not only don’t benefit anyone but are hazardous to the environment. There has been a growing problem when it comes to e-waste. As technology advances, there is an increasing temptation of people purchasing new items without dealing with their old machines. As time progresses, these items increase necessitating disposal. The problem is even worse for organizations that do not have a way of dealing with their old machines when they purchase new ones. The result is that they trash them, where they pollute water bodies, soil and contribute to the increasing greenhouse gas emission. The solution? Electronics Recycling Mississauga.

Electronics recycling Mississauga helps savage several items. Most electronics contain components such as copper, gold, silver, plastics and aluminium.  Recycling such items ensures that less virgin materials are used when processing new machines hence conserving the energy and resources for that. Scientifically speaking, e-waste contains some of the most hazardous and toxic materials if left freely available in the environment. These include mercury, chromium, lead, cadmium, chromium, beryllium and chemical flame retardants. Lead has the shortest half life among the naturally occurring radioisotopes and can quickly lead to human poisoning if allowed to trickle into water bodies and crops. Basically, if crops, fish or animals consume materials containing hard metals, they are indirectly consumed by humans who feed on them.
