Origins of Our E-Waste

Electronic waste, or e-waste, is generally considered anything that plugs into a wall or accepts batteries. E-waste has surfaced as an important issue, because it can be dangerous if disposed of improperly. Many major retailers have instituted take-back programs and municipalities have created drop-off locations to help quell e-waste issues.

Once Electronics Die

The average American household spends approximately $1,380 on consumer electronics per year. All those electronics translate into 25 million tons of electronic waste that is dumped into landfills and other locations. This waste contains harsh materials such as lead and can be harmful to the environment. However there are electronic recycling centers that safely dismantle this product and can help save our environment and then can be used to make other materials.
