Why Recycle Ewaste?
Happy Earth Day Everyone! As the world is celebrating “going green” – We wanted to remind everyone why it’s important to recycle your electronics. Here’s 10 reasons:
- E-waste represents 2% of America’s trash in landfills, but it equals 70% of overall toxic waste (Mother Jones)
- 20 to 50 million metric tons of e-waste are disposed worldwide every year (United Nations)
- Americans dump cell phones containing over $60 million in gold/silver every year (Voakes, Greg)
- A large number of what is labeled as “e-waste” is actually not waste at all, but rather whole electronic equipment or parts that are readily marketable for reuse or can be recycled for materials recovery (EPA)
- Only 12.5% of e-waste is currently recycled (EPA)
- For every 1 million cell phones that are recycled, 35,274 lbs of copper, 772 lbs of silver, 75 lbs of gold, and 33 lbs of palladium can be recovered (EPA)
- Recycling 1 million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes in a year (EPA)
- E-waste is still the fastest growing municipal waste stream in America (EPA)
- It takes 530 lbs of fossil fuel, 48 lbs of chemicals, and 1.5 tons of water to manufacture one computer and monitor (Electronics TakeBack Coalition)
- Electronic items that are considered to be hazardous include, but are not limited to: Televisions and computer monitors that contain cathode ray tubes, LCD desktop monitors, LCD televisions, Plasma televisions, Portable DVD players with LCD screens (Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality)
