E-Waste – Recycle, Recycle, Recycle!

May 8, 2016, Written by 0 comment

Have you ever had a moment when your computer has done so much work that it gets scorching hot and then blows up? No? Good, because I have not either. However, we have all had a computer that we either don’t want anymore because it is starting to run slow or, it has just been turned on and it thought: “you know what, I really can’t be bothered today” and never starts up. So, instead of putting it in a coffin and burying it under the ground, there are some ways that e-waste can help put your computer to good use, once again.

Why should I recycle my e-waste?

The obvious reasons as to why you should recycle your e-waste are:

  • It conserves natural resources; parts can be reused, in particular, copper, as it is starting to become a rare metal.
  • Better for the environment; there will be less rubbish or waste around. Therefore, it is a clear benefit to the environment.
  • Saves landfill space.

However, there are some, not so obvious ways of why to recycle your e-waste. You can help others by donating the electronic equipment, not only that; someone needs to disassemble all of the components and sort them out into categories, creating new jobs.

So next time your toaster has gone toast, remember to recycle it.
