Recycling Electronics

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 since used electronic equipment cont ains toxic components such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and beryllium. When these toxins are released into the ground or air, they cause damage to our health and environment.

For each new product that comes along, one or more becomes outdated or obsolete. Consequently, we’re storing or discarding older electronic products faster than ever. In 1998, studies estimate about 20 million computers became obsolete in one year. In 2005, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or the Agency) estimates that between 26-37 million computers became obsolete. Along with computers, TVs, VCRs, cell phones, and monitors, an estimated 304 million electronics were removed from US households in 2005, with about two-thirds of those still in working order, according to Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) estimates.

Although used electronics represent less than two percent of the municipal solid waste stream, if we continue to replace old or outdated electronic equipment at our current rate that percentage will likely grow. In 2005, used or unwanted electronics amounted to approximately 1.9 to 2.2 million tons. Of that, about 1.5 to 1.8 million tons were primarily disposed in landfills, and only 345,000 to 379,000 tons were recycled. Foot note:
