Although recycling e-waste is not hard, many individuals end up discarding their electronic waste in the trash. From there it will end up at the landfills, becoming a major contributor to GHG emissions. That’s how e-waste becomes a problem, causing global warming. Such is the missed opportunity of extracting more out of your e-waste. If e-waste is carefully recycled, it becomes a great opportunity to build a raw material that can be used to manufacture new products: creating business opportunities and reducing the burden on the landfills. Either way, it brings each electronic device’s utility to a complete full circle, bringing the circular economy to life. Many businesses have been established by capitalizing on a growing problem by turning it into an opportunity. Therefore, recycling e-waste can become an opportunity if you act upon it now! Otherwise, it’s only going to add up to the stack of already existing problems.

Saving The Planet With E-Waste Recycling

E-waste recycling reduces environmental pollution and can potentially save the planet. And since e-waste consists of toxic substances, it cannot be carelessly discarded in the trash. These toxic substances include mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium, chromium, and chemical flame retardants. This is why, when e-waste ends up at the landfills, these chemicals can seep into the soil or the atmosphere, and pollute the soil and air. When the soil is polluted, the possibility of it compromising the groundwater becomes inevitable. And the polluted groundwater means that it is affecting life on earth. Therefore, removing e-waste from landfills is as important as saving the planet.

Conclusion

We cannot stop tech from evolving, however, we can control how we discard our e-waste. According to research, it was estimated that in 2019, 54 million metric tons of e-waste was produced worldwide. This number has only been increasing annually as almost only 20% of it is documented, collected, and recycled. Moreover, the way the electronic devices are becoming obsolete with an updated version every once or twice a year, the e-waste will grow. If all e-waste is recycled, it can grow opportunities for businesses to collect e-waste and recycle it into raw material.
