Electronic waste refers to discarded, end-of-life, broken electrical or electronic products. It is a hazardous waste with a negative impact on health and the environment. The improper treatment of e-waste or open dumping in landfills produces toxic chemicals, which has become a global issue.  

E-waste is a growing problem as people demand more for electronic products. We have grown comfortable doing activities, owing to the pandemic. We are now more dependent on our mobile phones, tablets, and computers for communication and correspondence.

According to a report generated by the UN University, it has been predicted that electronic and electrical waste will be doubled by 2050 to reach 111 million Tonnes per year. Most importantly, the UN’s Global E-waste Monitor 2020 highlights that only 17.4 percent of 2019’s e-waste was collected and recycled.’ It means a huge quantity of e-waste is tossed in a community landfill without proper treatment.   

Recycle Technologies takes responsibility for recycling your e-waste. We offer professional e-waste recycling services. We are committed to achieving zero waste emissions and conserving non-replenishable natural resources.  

What Are The Categories of Electronic Waste?  

According to the Global E-waste 2017 report, electrical waste has six categories. Each category has a different lifetime profile, quantities, economic value, and potential health and environmental impacts.  

What is The Impact of Improper Electronic Waste Disposal?  

  • Alarming Health issues  

The health issues from electrical and e-waste are alarming. The negative impacts linked to this type of waste are respiratory effects, DNA damage, and increasing the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer. WHO warns of situations for informal processing of e-waste devices with birth defects, reduced cognition, etc. Exposure to harmful substances like lead, nickel, mercury, bromine, and flame retardants puts human health at risk.  

  • Resource Exploitation   

E-waste contains valuable resources like silver, copper, nickel, and gold, dumped into landfills. It causes pressure on mining. Over-exploitation of these resources contributes to depletion.   

  • Toxic Chemicals  

Electronic and electrical waste contains complex toxic chemicals and hazardous substances. It pollutes our ecosystems and poisons our air, soil, and groundwater. Open burning of e-waste produces toxic fumes that pollute the air. Leachates contaminate soil and seep into groundwater. These toxic chemicals pollute all these environmental segments.
