E-Waste Recycling in Seattle

When it comes to the proper way of getting rid of e-waste the there are no short cuts to be taken. Two officials of Executive Recycling Inc. found that out the hard way when they were recently convicted of multiple counts of mail and wire fraud all stemming from the illegal disposal of collected e-waste. According to the law, all e-waste collected in the U.S. has to stay in the U.S. to be properly disposed off. It can’t be shipped overseas. That’s because the conditions of those overseas dumping sites are nothing less than deplorable. However, the executives at this company gave the order to work around the law and ship the e-waste to China even after claiming they weren’t doing that. As a result those execs are now facing up to $250,000 in fines and 20 years in jail. You don’t want to mess around with e-waste. That’s why you should always call upon a trusted professional like Junk King Seattle to handle the collection and disposal of your electronic waste.

What exactly classifies as electronic waste? “Electronic” is the key word. Anything that has to be plugged into an outlet to power up is considered e-waste. This means all your old televisions, computers, monitors, fax machines, copiers, cell phones, DVD players and boom boxes would all fall under the e-waste classification. The reason these items have to be taken apart and sorted is that some of their components can contain toxic materials. They are no harm to us when they are being used but if these components are tossed onto a trash heap and allowed to decompose then those toxins can end up in the environment and that’s not going to be good for anybody.
