Computer systems use a lot of raw material.

For example, the electronic hardware contains precious metals such as gold and silver as well as a large amount of copper and lead. Many components also make use of rare minerals such as tantalum that are becoming harder to find on the Earth.

All this points to a need to recycle, both for the benefit of the environment and to save money.

To encourage this even further there is an EU directive called WEEE - Waste Electrical
