Reasons for Recycling E-Waste

Did you know that Australians are among the highest users of technology in the world, and that e-waste is one of the fastest growing waste types in our country?

 

Of the 15.7 million computers discarded in Australia in 2008, less than 10% were properly managed and recycled through e-waste recycling.

E-waste recycling, also known as electronic recycling, is one of the best ways to ensure your businesses consumption of electronic goods – whether you own a mobile, a computer, television, or home appliances – does not detrimentally impact our environment.

Protecting the Environment

Recycled materials from obsolete electronics can be used to make new products. By recycling e-waste with an e-waste recycling company that knows how to sort, itemise and dismantle your electronics properly – either by converting them into raw materials or recovering value from working parts via resell – you can help conserve valuable natural resources.

How does converting e-waste into reusable materials work? E-waste recycling makes it possible to extract and combine the natural elements found in e-waste into new materials, such as aluminium, copper, plastic, mercury and acids. This means the toxic materials in your television set or computer – for example – can be reused efficiently in a new electronic item, instead of harming the environment.
