Nashville, TN /PRNewswire/ - Sadoff E-Recycling & Data Destruction has joined TERRA (The Electronics Reuse & Recycling Alliance) to provide electronics recycling options for residents of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.

"Cyber Monday reminds us what an essential role e-Stewards and R2 Certified recyclers like Sadoff play in creating a sustainable, circular economy," said Steven Napoli, President & CEO of TERRA. "As we rush to purchase new devices this holiday season, we need to take responsibility to mitigate the growing threat to human health and the environment cause by our old ones."
It is estimated that one million recycled mobile phones will recover 35,274 lb of copper, 772 lb of silver and 75 lb of gold.
"With the amount of e-waste expected to more than double by 2050, we have to focus on establishing best-practices for businesses and consumers alike," said Jason Lasky, Partner at Sadoff. "We are excited to join TERRA and provide the people in our region with simple, secure and sustainable e-waste recycling options.
E-Waste is also a major environmental problem, accounting for 70% of the toxins entering landfills including substances like arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, etc.
