Hazardous materials in the home...
The Colorado Department of Public Health & Safety estimates that in 2003 over 58,000 tons of computer systems became obsolete in Colorado. "If all these had been disposed of in our state's landfills, it would've added 9,200 tons of lead to the environment." Colorado citizens contributed about 24% or 2,200 tons!
