Electronic waste

Electronic waste may be defined as discarded computers, office electronic equipment, entertainment device electronics, mobile phones, television sets, among other things. These items can contain hazardous substances such as mercury, lead, cadmium, chromium and PBDEs, and therefore must be disposed of properly, and not in your weekly garbage collection.
