What Your Recycled Electronics Can Become
With new iPhones, TVs, laptop and gaming systems coming out every year, e-waste is being generated at an incredibly fast rate. The average life span of a cell phone in the United States is less than 2 years! In 2016, 44.7 million metric tons of e-waste were generated; that’s almost the equivalent of 4,500 Eiffel Towers.
With those staggering facts in mind, it’s more important than ever to properly recycle old and unwanted electronics. Electronic scrap makes up 70% of the overall toxic waste in U.S. landfills. The copper, aluminum, plastic and glass found in the devices can be reused in consumer products instead of going into a landfill.
