What is considered E-Waste?
More than just outdated cell phones, E-Waste is any electronic waste that is no longer wanted or is now obsolete, whether it works or not.
To put it simply, E-Waste is anything with a plug or battery that is not wanted any more.
Why is E-Waste a growing problem?
Increasing consumer demand electrical and electronic items such as computers, flat screen televisions, mobile phones, etc. has escalated at an alarming rate.
The damaging environmental impact of E-Waste going to landfill is immense.
Electrical items contain a number of toxic contaminants which, if dumped into landfill sites will eventually leach out of the earth, water and atmosphere with serioud potential repercussions for our environment and our health.
If not for us, then for our children and our grandchildren.
