e-Green promotes “Zero Waste to Landfill” Ethics and
Operates “Cradle to Cradle” under all Federal, State
and Local Regulations to Ensure the Responsible
Recycling of all E-Waste Collected.


Once the equipment reaches us 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.


NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, January 2008 states that, “It
is estimated that more than 70% of discarded computers and
monitors and well over 80% of TV’s eventually end up in landfills,
despite a growing number of state laws prohibiting dumping of
e-waste which leaks lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, beryllium
and other toxics into the ground.” http://ngm.nationalgeographic.
