People nowadays buy more electronic products than ever before. New, advanced technology is introduced all the time; this results in a need for constant upgrading of electronic equipment. This means that now-obsolete models of computers, mobile phones and gaming systems are discarded on an ongoing basis.
Recycling these old electronics is an excellent way to reduce the amount of waste in landfills and help protect the environment. Recycling electronics is also a great way to save money by keeping valuable materials out of landfills and turning them into new products that will be used again.
Electronic waste (E-waste) is a term used to describe these now-undesirable electronic products. It is estimated that over 600 million cell phones are thrown away each year without being recycled properly. They not only contain valuable metals such as gold or silver but also rare earth minerals like tantalum which can be reused for other purposes such as jewelry or even car parts!
Why You Should Recycle E-Waste
- Old electronic devices often contain toxic substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium, beryllium, polyvinyl chloride and chromium. When these devices are thrown into landfills, the chemicals leach into the soil and pollute both ground water and the air.
- Electronics contain valuable raw materials. Recycling old devices saves energy and reduces the need to draw more raw materials from nature to create new electronics.
- Reusing old devices prevents e-waste by keeping them out of landfills. It also helps to save the resources used to recycle them, and giving them a new life helps people in need. If you have old devices, give them a second life by taking them to be refurbished.
- Recycling saves the raw materials that can be used to produce new devices. That way, less energy is used, pollution is reduced, and the amount of greenhouse gas released into the atmosphere is lowered.
