The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states electronic waste is now the fastest growing segment of our nation’s waste. Electronic waste, from computers to TVs, contain toxic materials such as lead, chromium, cadmium, mercury, beryllium, nickel, zinc and other potentially harmful chemicals. The EPA warns when electronics that contain these materials are not recycled or are not disposed of properly, the hazardous chemicals can contaminate the ground water and present additional environmental concerns. Flood Brothers will provide a free drop-off for approved electronics at the Village of Cary Public Works, 454 Cary Woods Circle. For further information and a list of approved electronics, please visit Flood Brothers' website at https://www.floodbrothersdisposal.com/towns-served/cary.
