E-waste can contain dangerous materials such as beryllium and mercury that pose environmental risks. So, we recycle cameras that are damaged and not working anymore. Here are some benefits of recycling of cameras.

By recycling cameras, we recover the valuable materials present inside the product, which conserves natural resources.
