What happens to more than 6,000 PCs That become obsolete in California every day?
These Poison PCs are either tossed out with the trash, ending up in landfills, or stored in attics and garages. If you are a typical consumer, you have 2 to 3 obsolete computers awaiting disposal. Government researchers, estimate that three-quarters of all computers ever sold in the United States remain stockpiled, awaiting disposal.
Obsolete electronic equipment is flooding landfills and incinerators, emitting hazardous substances that seep into the environment.
The cathode ray tubes (CRTs) in computer monitors, television sets, and other video display devices contain as much as seven pounds lead and significant concentrations of other heavy metals.
Except for free events like this one, opportunities for California consumers to dispose of e-waste responsibly and within the law, are practically non-existent.
