Electronic waste or E-waste such as televisions, computers and monitors contain toxic components. A typical computer processor and monitor contain five to eight pounds of lead and heavy metals such as cadmium, mercury and arsenic. Under Maine law, it is illegal to dispose of computer monitors and televisions. Instead, all waste computer monitors and televisions must be recycled at a Universal Waste Collection site available through a municipal or other program.
