Did you know that most electronics contain harmful or even toxic substances and are considered hazardous material? Unfortunately, nearly 2 million tons of electronic waste still ends up in our landfills every year! Not only does this fill up our landfill, which is nearing capacity, but as the electronics sit there and become weathered over time they begin to seep out their hazardous material, which leaches into ground and pollutes our soil and waterways.
Do you have old electronics you have been meaning to get rid of? BRIDGE is holding an e-waste recycling drive this Saturday at the Texas Roadhouse parking lot in Warwick. Learn more about the BRIDGE program on their blog.
