Electronic waste (e-Waste or e-Scrap) can be defined as loosely discarded, surplus, obsolete, or broken electrical or electronic devices. Given the ever increasing number of electronics that are upgraded every year it’s not surprising that they one of the fastest growing segments of our nation’s trash. Before you toss out your old electronics, consider these surprising statistics.
e-Scrap and e-Waste Facts
- According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an estimated 30 to 40 million PCs will be ready for “end-of-life management” in each of the next few years.
- The EPA estimates that in 2005, the U.S. discarded 1.5 to 1.9 million ton (3 billion lbs.) of computers, TVs, VCRs, monitors, cell phones, and other equipment.
- About 25 million TVs are taken out of service annually.
- According to the UN Environment Programme, the worldwide total for e-waste could be 50 million tons per year.
Recycling e-waste not only makes environmental sense but economic sense as well. By recycling electronics you are keeping them out of the landfills and allowing for the proper disposal of electronics that may contain hazardous or toxic substances. Recycling valuable elements and raw materials from end-of-life electronics, or eCycling, is one of the most effective solutions to the growing e-waste problem.
Recycling Old Computer Parts
Most electronic devices contain a variety of materials suitable for recovery and future uses including metals, engineered plastics, glass, and other materials. By introducing reuse possibilities, natural resources are conserved and the potential air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is mitigated. Ultimately, we all need to do our part to keep the environment green by recycling old computers and recycling electronics components. ROUND2 provides effective PC ecycling solutions and electronics demanufacturing services that will help you with recycling electronics.
