RISMEDIA, February 9, 2010—Earth911.com, provider of one of the nation’s leading Local Recycling and Disposal Directories, released the results of its 2009 Annual Recycling Report, with electronics such as computers, batteries and televisions leading the way.
“Electronics have always been popular searches on Earth911.com, but with the increased attention these devices have received, this past year was our highest yet,” said Corey Lambrecht, president of Earth911. “Also, overall recycling searches increased 12% over 2008, as consumers want to know more about how to dispose of these items.”
The top 10 products consumers looked to recycle in 2009 using Earth911’s Database were:

Earth911.com also discovered additional insights into recycling and consumer behavior. For example, 40% of respondents to a poll conducted on the Earth911.com homepage noted that when they buy a product, the “green” factor they are most concerned about is its recyclability. Also, 35% of Earth911 readers responded that their main challenge to adopting more green practices is money.
“Our Database of over 117,000 locations not only helps people find what’s available to them locally, but is also distributed across multimedia platforms for the easiest access possible–at no cost to consumers,” said Lambrecht.
