TEcoArt Complaint - Possible Toxic Material
LAKEWOOD RANCH, FLORIDA -- TEcoArt is located in a condominium building in Florida. The owner takes old hard drives, opens them up and uses parts to make cheap Made in China knock off clocks using the Hard drive platter.
He does all of this in his condo. His neighbors are unaware of the toxic materials emitting from his open patio.
Disposal of hard drives should be accomplished with caution because they contain environmentally harmful materials that are required to be recycled.
Hard-disk platters typically are made of aluminum, a metal that is energy-intesive to refine and, in its pure form, corrodes easily and must be coated with other materials, most often cobalt.
Cobalt is toxic, and in metallic form is radioactive.
I think someone should contact the EPA.
