The shelf-life of every day electronics seems to be getting shorter by the season. Especially with the influx of smart phones and smaller gadgets, consumers and businesses should stay informed about where to send those old computer monitors, TVs, fax machines that are passed any use.
Don't throw them away, says Frank Grazzini of EverSafe Recycling. There are some hazardous chemicals in many consumer electronics that should be processed. Plus, some of the precious metals and plastics, in circuit boards for example, can be melted and reused.
