How Is Electronic Waste Hazardous?

• Several electronic items contain the following hazardous components: lead, mercury, copper, cadmium, chromium, zinc, heavy metals, etc.
• Monitors: contain cathode ray tubes (CRTs) which are made up of 20% lead (4-8 lbs per unit!)
• Cell Phones: the coatings often are made of lead. Each cell phone contains .000624 lbs of lead.
• Cell Phone Batteries: batteries in cell phones are made up of nickel and cadmium. Cadmium is the human carcinogen that causes lung and liver damage. Alternatives contain potentially explosive lithium or toxic lead.
• Circuit Boards: Circuit boards contain mercury, lead and cadmium. Some have batteries that are made of mercury or mercury switches.
• Laptops: The screens in laptops contain small fluorescent lamps that contain mercury.
