We all know that e-waste disposal is a huge problem. The problem is becoming worse because getting rid of it is expensive and time consuming. This forces electronic owners to just keep and hoard their unused and unwanted E-Waste at home. Others get rid of them by throwing it to their curb bins along with their regular everyday junk.
The average American home contains four to five electronic devices, and most of them are not being recycled properly. According to a recent study by the Environmental Protection Agency, only about 25% of unwanted electronics are recycled each year. This means 75% of old gadgets end up in landfills.
Furthermore, the EPA estimates that more than 3 million tons of electronic appliance waste are generated every year in the United States alone. In fact, some studies suggest that as many as 500 pounds of toxic material ends up in landfills each year from just one desktop computer! This results in contaminated soil and groundwater for those living near landfills across the country. Plus, these harmful materials end up being shipped to developing countries where they contaminate local water supplies and fisheries – not to mention negatively impacting people’s health. It’s a serious problem with no easy solution…until now!
If you are in the market for electronics recycling, there is a lot of confusion about what to do with all your old devices. There are several options available when it comes to disposing of electronic waste materials. You can try selling them on Craigslist or eBay, but that’s not always easy and if you don’t know much about the value of these items, getting ripped off isn’t out of the question either.
