Laptops contain toxic materials and substances that can be harmful to the environment. When laptops are chucked in the bin, they go straight to landfill, adding to the already over polluted landfill sites, and release toxins into the ground, water and air.
In order to reduce the number of electrical devices entering our landfill sites, the government developed The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) to help tackle landfill pollution and increase the recycling of electronic goods.
What parts of a laptop can be recycled?
There are multiple components in a laptop that can be recycled. This includes the glass from a screen, keyboards, laptop casing, hard drives, cables, circuit boards, batteries and more.
