Electronic Waste Facts and Figures

Electronic Recycling Facts

United States is the second largest producer of electronic waste. In accordance to Statista.com the United States 2019 total electronic waste was 6,918,000 metric tons. You may look at all nations electronic waste facts and figures at Statista here.

United States recycles roughly 15% of its electronic waste. Another way of looking at this is 85% of electronics end up in a landfill. That’s a lot of materials that will eventually leach into soil, water, and evaporate into air.

What constitutes electronic waste?

E-waste, short for electronic waste, represents the rapidly expanding waste stream of electronic devices. This waste category encompasses electronic equipment that has reached its end of life and includes a diverse range of everyday products like old phones, televisions, fridges, and air conditioners. As technology advances, so does the accumulation of electronic waste. Proper management and recycling of e-waste are essential to mitigate its environmental impact and conserve valuable resources.

Why Should you Recycle Electronic Waste?

Recycling electronic waste (e-waste) is of paramount importance for several reasons. First, e-waste contains valuable and finite resources, including precious metals and rare earth elements. Second, e-waste often contains hazardous substances, such as lead, mercury, and brominated flame retardants. When improperly disposed of in landfills or incinerated, these toxins can leach into the soil, water, and air, posing significant health risks to both humans and the environment. Lastly, responsible e-waste recycling supports the development of a circular economy, where materials are continually reused and repurposed. This not only reduces the demand for new resources but also fosters job creation and economic opportunities in the recycling industry, and can keep cost of electronics down.
