Laptop service center
has announced a new e-waste initiative that guarantees that electronic waste produced by its repair efforts won’t end up in landfills in developing countries.
E-waste is a growing issue and something that’s key to environmental group
Greenpeace’s continued efforts
to raise awareness about environmental issues. Many times when electronic equipment is discarded, the material ends up in landfills or junkyards in developing countries where toxic components can be burned or dumped.
MacService president Justin Sanderson said that his company sends its e-waste through a “100 percent recycling process” thanks to a partnership with EarthCare Recycling and ECS Refining.
We’re working on educating other businesses about the process, so together we can make a significant impact on reducing e-waste locally and abroad,” said Sanderson.
