Why Recycle: 1. To keep toxic materials out of landfills to avoid possible life-threatening contamination of ground water. 2. To reclaim valuable resource s like gold, silver, and platinum used in small amounts in electronics. 3. By recycling with TREES, ISU Recycle Center, RecycleForce, and Duke Energy, you can be assured that all electronic waste will be dismantled and recycled within the United States, mainly in Indiana and the Midwest, following environmentally safe standards approved by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management
