E-waste, if not disposed of properly, can be hazardous to the environment.  E-waste is simply any old electronic device that you no longer wish to keep.  Items categorized as e-waste include (but are not limited to):

– Televisions (plasma and LCD)

– Computer monitors

– Computer CPU’s and software disks

– Cell phones, PDA’s, pagers

– DVD players and VCR’s

– Laptops

– Printers and scanners

– Microwaves

– Camcorders

– Radios/MP3 Players/CD Players

– Fax Machines

– Photocopiers

Proper disposal of e-waste is easy.  First, you should determine if the product is still in working condition.  If products are still in working order or need only minor repairs, they should be donated to a school, library, charity or church.  You can also find a new home for these items by using websites such as Freecycle.org or Craigslist.com.
