St Louis Recycling and Waste Solutions was formed as a way to give back to the community and the entire world. That is why we offer recycling programs for electronics, batteries and fluorescent light bulbs. We feel these programs are important because:
- Fluorescent bulbs and CFL’s contain mercury which is poisonous to the environment.
- Electronic devices contain heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury, barium and lithium.
- The average computer screen has five to eight pounds or more of lead representing 40 percent of all the lead in US landfills.
- The effects of heavy metals leaching into our soil and water supply include tumors, mental health disorders, cancer, birth defects and damage to the brain, heart, liver, kidney and skeletal system. They also significantly affect the nervous and reproductive systems of the human body.
Businesses, charities, non-profits, schools, churches and public and governmental agencies in Missouri cannot legally discard certain electronics in Missouri landfills. They are required by federal and state law to properly manage certain unwanted electronics.
