Younger Adults Care Less About Recycling Electronics
Almost three years ago, Retrevo ran a survey that indicated more than 60 percent of the households across the country weren?t recycling their electronics. The most common reason cited was they just didn?t get around to it. Today, that figure has been cut by about half, but among those who don't recycle , it's because they still haven't gotten around to it. Adults under age 30 are the worst offenders: 17 percent don't recycle their old electronics, compared with just 8 percent for those over 30.
