Responding to the Growing Problem of Responsible E‑Waste Recycling
In 2014, according to a report by the EPA, every day, we get rid of 416,000 mobile devices and 142,000 computers either by recycling or disposing of them in landfills or incinerators. The United States alone generated 11.7 million tons of E-Waste in 2014. Today, only 15-20 percent of electronic devices and equipment are recycled worldwide. Most electronic waste is sent to landfills or becomes incinerated, having a negative impact on the environment by releasing materials such as lead, mercury, or cadmium into the soil, groundwater, and atmosphere.
