GO GREEN WITH LCWS
Why Go Green?
Environmental Benefits - Although obvious, the environmental benefits are the main reason you should go green. By using our recycling services you are cutting the amount of electronic waste going to landfill. Shockingly 20 to 50 million metric tons of e-waste are disposed worldwide every year.
Public Recognition - Going green is more than just a trend. It is important to employees and customers. They don't just expect organisations to have a green agenda, but to also be public about this, sharing their ways of helping the environment via the media and internet. Use our services and you can share about us being a partner!
