“We understand that what goes into the garbage does not just disappear. We take every measure into consideration to meet and exceed United States EPA regulations. Many devices in the computer industry contain elements that are harmful to the environment, such as lead and mercury. For this reason, we make every attempt to keep equipment in circulation as long as possible,” a news release from iSynergy stated.
