Responsible recycling is a way to make sure that our resources are sustainable. Programs we put into place, help our environment for generations to come.
In 2005 California enacted the Electronic Waste Recycling Act: SB20 and SB50 (www.calrecycle.ca.gov) banning many electronic devices from landfills. Responsible recycling will keep our environment a prestine environment while not changing it into a wasteland.
Keeping electronics out of the landfill will help keep pollutants not only out of the ground but out of the water where our children play, people drink and animals rely on for their daily survival.
It is time that we make a change. Electronic Waste Managemtent has stepped up to the plate and made that commitment to be part of a California State program as a "State-Approved Collector (CEWID#102857)".
OUR COMMITMENT: Our EWM family commits to provide local community education and awareness on Reuse, Reduce, and Recycle.
