Electronics like stereos contain toxic chemicals like mercury and flame retardants that can leach into waterways.
Stereo equipment can be taken to Eastern Regional Landfill during normal business hours for a fee. From there, it will be sent to a recycling facility, disassembled, and recycled into new products.
