New Era Pest Control Agrees Recycling Electronics is EcoSmart
Because of our dedication to preserving the environment, New Era Pest Control recommends green alternatives and is something that we feel really good about! Simply throwing those electronics in the garbage over a period of time really hurts our environment. Recycling allows the plastics, metals, processors and more to be re-used.
Our Natural Pest Control Company and others discard our product containers in a safe manner. If you have ever changed your oil at home, taking the old oil to some place that would recycle it, like your local auto parts store, or garage would be the “right thing to do”. Right? Separating your plastics and paper at home for recycling is also something good for the environment. Well electronics are no different. Simply throwing them away really hurts our planet over the long haul. Below are some places that will take your old relics. They’ll love ya for it and you’ll feel good all over for doing your part to keep our planet a safe place to live for years to come!
