E-waste has become a major problem in different world nations due to the limited space available for disposing of these devices. Each year only 10 percent of e-waste is actually recycled securely worldwide, according to statistics from one of the world's largest recyclers, Total Reclaim, and other recycling companies.
E-waste recycling is extremely important for any business that wishes to decommission its offices. Unfortunately, there is a lack of knowledge on the specific components that can be recycled and the difficulty in finding accepted recycling centers.
We know that e-waste causes pollution and that it is better to recycle it than discard it. In fact, there are several benefits to recycling electronics. By recycling electronic trash, we save natural resources such as oil and metal which has better applications as energy sources.
