E-Cycle to Help Reduce Waste and Hazardous Materials in Your Community
Electronic waste is growing exponentially and currently contributes 70 percent of the toxic materials in landfills. Heavy metals like lead, cadmium and mercury seep out of computers and TVs and into the ground which can potentially threaten our drinking water and other natural resource supplies. Recycling – or e-cycling – these and other electronic items is critical for preserving landfill space and ensuring that hazardous materials used to make electronics are properly disposed.
As your technology provider, Acropolis is happy to work with you to remove sensitive data from your business hardware before e-cycling your servers and other electronics. Below are just a few local service providers that will ensure proper disposal of your old business electronics at no cost or for a small fee.
To view a list of upcoming e-cycling drop off locations and collection events, visit the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ “Missouri E-Cycle” website.
