E-Waste Collection Day
E-Waste is the recycling of old electronic equipment, like computers, cell phones and printers. E -Waste is toxic to the environment and over time these toxins leak lead and other hazardous toxins into water tables and drinking water. Some states allow E-Waste to be dumped into the landfills while others have made it illegal.
Pennsylvania now has a law that prohibits the dumping of E–Waste into landfills. Celo Holding is a green, locally owned company that recycles E-Waste for free. Celo Holdings LLC will collect all of this E–Waste, disassemble it down to its raw materials and recycle them to be made into brand new products.
