What do I do with my old DVR cords?

If you no longer need your old DVR cords, it is best to recycle them. It is important to ensure that these cords don’t end up in landfills or oceans where they can be a pollutant. Recycling not only helps the environment but it also ensures that the materials can be reused in a responsible way. 

What are the benefits of recycling my DVR?

Recycling your DVR can help reduce the amount of waste in landfills, conserve energy and resources, save money on new products, and create job opportunities. Recycling also means that fewer toxic substances are released into our environment. 

What recyclable materials are in a DVR?

Most DVRs are composed of a variety of materials, many of which can be recycled. Plastic and metal make up the main components of the device and can both be recycled. Although Cohen only recycles metal, learn more about where to recycle non-metal materials.

What are the risks of not recycling my DVR?

Not recycling your DVR can have multiple negative effects. Firstly, it can lead to a buildup of toxic materials in landfills since the components of DVRs contain harmful substances such as lead, mercury and cadmium. These materials are highly dangerous for both humans and the environment. Additionally, not recycling your DVR may contribute to further strain on the world’s resources since it is made up of rare materials such as gold and silver, which are difficult to come by. Finally, not recycling your DVR can lead to additional costs for businesses and individuals who need to purchase new equipment due to a lack of recycled parts. 

Can I make money from recycling my DVR?

While you can get paid for some recyclable items, DVR’s sometimes incur a recycling fee. Some items require more processing but the benefits of recycling are still great! Even with a small fee, you’re making the world around you greener and your own life leaner – helping both the environment and economy while decluttering at home.
