E‑Waste Disposal in Las Vegas

E‑Waste disposal in Las Vegas is made possible today by the universal waste regulations established by the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003. It declared that there are procedures in handling material contained in these appliances and machines.

E-Waste Disposal

We live in an era of technology, where we can look anywhere in our homes and find endless electronic devices and products. These devices help us live more comfortable lives by serving a specific purpose. E‑Waste, or electronic waste, is a term loosely applied to consumer and business electronic equipment that is near or at the end of its useful life.

Most of our household appliances that have electronic components are considered E‑Waste. However, some items such as microwaves have not yet been determined as belonging to this category. Certain components of these electronic products contain materials that render them hazardous. They are also insanely polluting, and since there are no established avenues to treat and handle E‑Waste, the uncontrolled disposal of these items into landfills pollutes the environment.

Established Methods to Discard Electronics

The slogan of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” is imbedded in our brains, so let’s use that to establish the best way to treat disposed electronic devices.

By reducing the consumption, or by maintaining your devices and reducing your amount of E‑Waste, you are contributing to the solution of this problem. Sometimes reusing functional electronic equipment can not only be helpful but it can also help someone else who needs it. Recycling E‑Waste is the best way to proceed when your device has reached the end of its useful life.

What Items are considered E‑Waste?

Some of the items that make the list include, but are by no means limited to:

  • Computers (CPUs, laptops)
  • Accessories (mouse, keyboards, flash drives, etc.)
  • Copy Machines
  • Televisions
  • Printers
  • Monitors
  • Refrigerators
  • Stoves
  • Washing Machines
  • Telephones and cell phones
  • Scanners
  • Fax machines
  • Copy machines
  • Mobile phones
  • CD players
  • Medical appliances and instruments
  • Lighting appliances (fluorescent tubes)
  • Drills, lawnmowers
  • Electronic toys
  • Ticket issuing machines
  • Arcade game machines
  • Video game consoles
  • Document Shredders

We Check to See If Your E-Waste is Still Working

If it is, then we will be responsible to donate those electronic items to a charity that will make good use of them. If they have stopped working properly, we will dispose of them in an eco‑friendly way in order to limit the damage of the harmful and potentially hazardous components.

When you stop and think about it, the last time one of your electronic devices completely stopped working, you replaced the item almost immediately. If it was still working ok, but you decided you needed to upgrade it, you didn’t really think about what was going to happen to your old device. You probably tossed it aside, or put it in a shoe box somewhere in your closet.

That’s probably what happened to that printer, those computer monitors, and the old TV set that’s sitting in the attic. They’ve been out of rotation, and they were turned off. They didn’t break, but they most likely won’t be used anytime soon again.

We Also Care About Our Environment

It is our responsibility to be mindful of what we put into our landfills, especially if we know how harmful some of the components from these electronic devices can be for water quality and for our health. By calling 1-844-JUNK-ONE (1-844-586-5663) you can rest assured that usable electronics are donated to charities, and your recyclable e-waste won’t be filling up a landfill and potentially endangering the communities around it.
