Find out Why E-Waste Recycling is Important to Include in Your Organization, and who can help you get closer to this Sustainable Business Practice
Why is E-waste Recycling So Important?
Electronic waste has become the most rapidly growing segment of the municipal solid waste stream, so effective e-waste recycling and disposal is vital for our environment. Sadly, the EPA reports that e-waste in the U.S. had more than doubled since the year 2000, and a mere 13% of electronics are disposed of properly. E-waste contains plentiful valuable materials such as aluminum, copper, gold and silver. Rather than relegating it to the landfill, unwanted electronic equipment can be refurbished, reused and recycled, conserving natural resources and reducing the energy needed to produce new electronic equipment. For example, recycling aluminum saves 90% of the energy needed to produce new aluminum. It just makes good environmental sense to recycle electronic scrap instead of just dumping it into a landfill. E-waste also contains toxic and hazardous materials including lead and mercury. These materials have the potential to leach into our soil and water, so it’s imperative that we protect our surroundings with proper e-waste recycling and disposal.
