Responsible Electronics Recycling in Maine
We are pleased to offer the citizens of Maine proper disposal of their unwanted electronics in support of the Maine Electronic Waste Law. It is important that these devices be managed at the end of their useful lives in such a way as to prevent harm to the environment, the communities in which the devices are disposed and the workers processing the equipment. At the same time, these devices contain material that can be used in the manufacturing of new products. Material such as steel, aluminum, plastic, copper and precious metals can be separated and returned to the marketplace, giving them new life in new products.
