Once the equipment is accepted here, the following process takes place: all hazardous components (batteries on circuit boards and portable equipment, mercury switches, toxic capacitors, fluorescent lamps, leaded glass from monitors, etc.) will be extracted prior to destruction. These are then disposed of in an environmentally sound manner, exceeding Federal and State regulations. Non-hazardous materials (paper, plastic, metal, glass, etc.) are recycled. All material assigned to destruction is totally disassembled, shredded, incinerated or a combination of these.
For more information about this event or e-waste recycling, please contact Senator Addabbo’s district office at 718-738-1111.
