Merry Christmas! We wish you all the merriment and cheer this season! This time of year is a time for giving; whether that mean giving our time with family and friends, or the exchanging of presents to promote a sense of cheer and joy. In this day and age, many of the presents we receive have some sort of electrical components attached to it. With technology seeming to change by the minute, this also means receiving a new model of a previous design. From phones to computers to even toys, so much of our daily live are electronic. But this season, instead of letting last year’s model collect dust in the closet, bring it to Direct Metals Recycling, located in Atlanta, Ga, and trade it in for some extra cash!
Why Recycle Electronics With Direct Metals Recycling?
- Help the Environment – Much of the electronic waste we produce ends up in our city’s landfills, but these items contain mercury and other toxic materials that can be harmful to the environment. Recycling things like old phones can help reduce the amount of toxins contaminating our water and land, and also reduces the need to strip the earth of more precious metals.
- Make Some Cash – As we stated before, this a great way to clean out that closet and make a little extra cash! Many of us are faced with sparse wallets and purses this season and a little extra money is welcomed.
- Secure from Identity Theft – You see it as trash, but someone else might see it as treasure. Discarded electronics is a prime source of identity theft for those seeking to do so. When you recycle you recycle with us, we take steps to ensure each item is wiped clean to prevent any such issues.
