E-waste is dangerous to deposit into Solid Waste landfills because of the heavy metals contained in them. They are considered as hazardous waste as you can see on electronic recycling toronto website. Because old electronic devices contain toxic substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium and chromium, proper processing is essential to ensure that these materials are not released into the environment. They may also contain other heavy metals and potentially toxic chemical flame retardants.
