What is E-waste?
“Electronic waste” or “E-waste” may be defined as all secondary computers, entertainment device electronics, mobile phones, and other items such as television sets and refrigerators, whether sold, donated, or discarded by their original owners. This definition includes used electronics which are destined for reuse, resale, salvage, recycling, or disposal.
Why Recycle E-waste?
Divert Hazardous & Toxic Chemicals from Landfill
E-waste is on average at least 95% recyclable by weight yet it can contain a long list of harmful and toxic chemicals also. WA’s Landfills are not sufficiently designed to handle these toxic materials. In addition to recovering the many useful materials contained within electronic waste, containing the toxic and hazardous materials are a must if we want to ensure a cleaner environment for future generations.
Reduce Green-house Gas Emissions
Smart & efficient recycling of E-waste can save many times its own weight in CO2 emissions.
And choose what you do with your E-waste carefully…
Different companies employ different methods of recycling and utilize different processes and avenues for recycling materials down-stream. This can produce very different results in the actual level of environmental benefit gained through your choice to recycle, and in some cases may even result in the unethical export and dumping of your e-waste on the developing world.
