Recycle Everything

Did you know?

Forests in Africa are destroyed when people mine for coltan, a metallic ore used to make new cell phones and other electronics.  In the U.S., more than 500 million discarded cell phones sit in drawers or worse, in our landfills.  Another 130 million phones will be added this year alone!

The City of Albuquerque has several electronics or "e-waste" recycling days each year.  Visit the Solid Waste Department website for details.
