Personal Computer Recycling and Disposal with Ease
We can hardly imagine modern life without a personal computer. Everyone has it, most of us use it, but eventually, all of us have to get rid of the old pc, and replace it with the new one. Who you gonna call for personal computer disposal and recycling? Definitely not the Ghostbusters:) Try WE JUNK, because WE CARE enough to dispose of your unwanted items and appliances responsibly!
E-waste recycling matter, because appliances, such as computers, contain hazardous waste (heavy metals and carcinogens) which negatively affect the environment and enter the atmosphere, landfills and waterways. To enforce and encourage the proper computer disposal, National Computer Recycling Act has been adopted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). And it’s not only fines that we should care about, but the environment we live in. Think green and dispose of waste responsibly!

Since that time, more and more junk appliances are recycled worldwide due to increased awareness and investment, and desktop computers are not an exception. Such type of PC consists of a CRT monitor, system unit, keyboard and a mouse.
