We offer Recycling of Clocks & Watches.
Since the beginning of the digital age everyone looks to their watch or clocks to know exactly what time of the day it is. Clocks and watches have helped us keep track of time. Today there are numerous watches that have capabilities to do much more than just tell time. They can track steps, make a phone call, and tell you your heart rate. Even modern clocks have smart functionalities that can tell you about the climate, weather, and more.
Why Should you Recycle your Clocks and Watches?
Clocks and watches should be recycled to keep hazardous wastes out of landfills. Even with their small sizes, watches can be hazardous to landfills as they may contain batteries with mercuric oxide materials which are toxic to the environment due to the effects of mercury. Many of the batteries today use zinc or lithium but these still pose a threat to the environment if left in landfills. They may be incinerated, causing these materials to end up in our soil, water supply, and in the air.
How to Recycle Watches or Clocks
If you have clocks or watches that need to be recycled there are several ways to keep them out of our landfills. If your watch or clock is of great worth you may look into selling to recover the cost. You may take them into jewelers or post them on resale listings such as eBay. If your watches and clocks carry little to no value you may want to donate them to charity or gift them to people that could use them. If you are still having a hard time deciding what to do with them please be responsible and take them to an ethical electronics recycling facility like California Electronics Recycler in Santa Ana, California.
