LAN Systems Recycling Benefits Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation

eWasteMarch 15, 2016 – LAN Systems eRecycling program collected almost eight (8) tons of eWaste in 2015. All proceeds are being donated to the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation to assist in their mission to provide fire safety and prevention education, support medical facilities and assist burn survivors in their recovery.

Each year, the world produces tens of millions of tons of eWaste with the Unites States leading the way. It is estimated that the world’s eWaste will eclipse 75 millons tons next year with only a fraction of that being recycled. Improperly discarded electronics are hard on our environment contaminating our water, land and air. It is hardest on children and can cause lasting health effects.

“It is everyone’s responsibility to make sure that they responsibly reduce, reuse and recycle electronics,” said CEO Mary Hester.  “And all technology organizations must make it easier for consumers. Our program is a step in the right direction and it raises money for noble causes.”

More and more people and organizations are discovering the seriousness of our eWaste disposal problem. Just like with any recycling initiative education to reduce, reuse and recycle is imperative. Even small steps are important in tackling this growing problem. More information at: http://ifixit.org/
