In today’s society, newer electronic equipment is being developed by the minute. But what happens with the old equipment? For the most part, electronics are thrown to the curb alongside regular garbage or stored in basements and garages for years. This older and obsolete equipment is quickly becoming part of the waste stream and most of the materials do not biodegrade.
More importantly, U.S. recyclers and watchdog groups like Basel Action Network estimate that 50 percent or more of the United States' used computers, cellphones and TVs sent to recyclers are shipped overseas for recycling to places like Taizhou, China or Lagos, Nigeria, as permitted by federal law. But much of this obsolete equipment ends up as toxic waste, with hazardous components exposed, burned, or allowed to degrade in landfills.
E-waste Recycling is Important
Entire computers can be recycled, from the glass in the monitor, to the plastic case, copper in the power supply, and the precious metals used in circuitry; Accurate IT Services can process every aspect of old technology safely.
Many computers can be refurbished and marketed too. For instance, some vocational schools use old PCs to teach electronic repair and analysis techniques. Even broken parts can be smelted down and reused, keeping viable materials active.
So, it’s easy to see why e-waste recycling is necessary. The use of recycled materials recovered from electronics to manufacture new products sustains the earth’s natural resources by helping eliminate electronics waste (e-waste). At the same time, electronics recycling conserves impressive amounts of energy in the manufacturing process, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions from those facilities. Furthermore, it keeps hazardous chemicals like lead and mercury out of our environment!
