Televisions and computer monitors have changed more over the last 10 years than they had over the 40 years before that. As monitors continue to become better, there is less and less of a reason to keep older monitors for the supposed rainy day that will likely never come. Even if one’s flat screen monitor did sporadically malfunction, the chances are that the rest of the users computer system doesn’t have the necessary plugs anyway to support an older monitor.
If you live in the Minneapolis area and are looking to do some spring cleaning, you should consider finally getting rid of your old monitors. Contrary to popular belief and practice, televisions and computer monitors should not be disposed of with the rest of the garbage as they may contain chemicals that are incredibly harmful to the environment.
By operating as a non-profit organization, we seek to provide people with a cost-effective way to safely dispose of their unwanted monitors through our monitor recycling program. Recycling old monitors and other various electronics is an excellent way to do your part and to give back to your community. Not only are you preventing the potential damage to the environment that your old monitor may have caused, you are also preventing harm elsewhere by reducing the need to manufacture ecologically expensive plastics, metals, and glass.
If you would like to know more about the services we offer or just want to get rid of your old monitors in a cost-effective and safe way, please feel free to contact us and we would be more than happy to elaborate.
