The world’s endemic E-Waste problem continues to grow and spiral rapidly out of control…
…as people continue to incorrectly dispose of their old electronics.
E-Waste is essentially old technology
E-Waste is essentially old technology no longer in use as it is broken, obsolete or has been replaced by a newer model. This encompasses everything from fax machines to printers to video game consoles.
As technology makes giant leaps and bounds at incredible rates E-Waste significantly multiplies as populations clamour for the new ‘best’ phone, computer and video game.
E-Waste statistics are frightening.
As I have previously discussed in other articles posted on this site, E-Waste statistics are frightening, including such facts as:
» E-Waste is the number one form of disposed rubbish in the world
» Millions of computers, televisions and other electronics litter landfills with each passing year
» Technology that isn’t in landfills is often just sitting in storage, never to see the light of day again!
E-Waste is overtaking landfills
When considering the information available, both through these articles and the internet as a whole, it is disturbing how E-Waste is overtaking landfills and impacting upon the environment.
This information, though confronting, should urge consumers worldwide to recycle their E-Waste.
Avoid allowing your old, broken and outdated technology from becoming another E-Waste statistic and PLEASE recycle!
