Why recycle?

What is e-waste recycling?

The most straightforward definition is the reuse or recycling of electronic equipment nearing the end of its life and considered obsolete.  The main objective of e-waste recycling is to reduce environmental hazard and pollution. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace, and as a result, e-waste recycling has emerged as a prominent and important initiative among organizations working to achieve sustainability.

If e-waste goes to a landfill, hazardous and toxic substances can leak out, causing water and soil contamination. This can be hugely harmful to wildlife, human health, and the environment. Aside from this, there is also an ever-growing problem with irresponsible waste disposal companies sending e-waste overseas.


Materials such as chromium, cadmium, mercury and lead can leach into the soil contaminating the air and waterways. EPA estimates there are about 60 million tons of e-waste per year globally. Recycling this material will save landfill space.
