On top of that, electronic waste can contain lead and mercury so that when it reaches landfill it can create environmental damage and human harm which cannot be repaired.

Other electronic items that you drop off for recycling include vacuum cleaners, cameras, printers, scanners, fax machines, hair dryers, photocopiers, batteries, DVD players, video recorders and your DVDs, tapes and CDs.
