E-WASTE RECYCLING GUIDE
The term “e-waste” is an abbreviation of “electronic and electrical waste”, it includes almost any household or business item containing circuitry or electrical components with either power or battery supply and is no further use and is rejected as useless or excess to the owner in its current condition.
Although e-waste is a general term, it can be considered to denote items such as TV appliances, computers, laptops, tablets, mobile phones, white goods – for example, fridges, washing machines, dryers – home entertainment and stereo systems, toys, toasters and kettles.
Modern electronics are safe to use and be around, but that’s while they are above ground. Once they are irresponsibly dumped all the toxic material they include, similar as beryllium, cadmium, mercury, and lead, will pose serious environmental risks to our soil, water, and air.
Not only is this a problem for E-waste in landfills, but this is a side effect of mining for new sources of metal too.
Having an environmentally-friendly source of recycled metal is better for the environment than a company digging up new sources of ore. Every time you recycle your electronics, you are preventing your E-waste from leaching toxic metals into your groundwater. But you’re also preventing it from happing at a mine somewhere else.
The recycling of e-waste serves a lot of useful purposes. For instance, include protecting human and environmental health by keeping those devices out of landfills.
Fortunately, there’s a proven solution, schedule your recyclables pickups.
