The Proper Way To Dispose Of Electronic Waste


When electronics are dumped in landfills, toxic substances pollute the air and water. Increasingly, old equipment is being abandoned due to its limited lifetime. So properly disposing of old items is critical. Here are some facts on safely disposing of electronic waste.


Here Are 6 Ways You Can Get Rid Of Electronic Waste:


Reuse

To begin with, do everything you can to prevent throwing away electronic trash in the first place. While recycling is beneficial, it is more cost-effective to reuse. Donating your old devices helps the environment by reducing e-waste pollution. Someone else, or a nonprofit organization, will be able to make use of them.


Find A Recycler Who Is Certified

The most reliable source for recycling electronics properly is E-stewards. You can rely on a licensed e-Steward to properly dispose of your devices due to their high requirements. Find an e-steward in your area by using this tool.


E-Waste Collection Days In Your Area

Certain local governments and schools provide additional responsible recycling choices. In addition, many towns and cities provide e-cycling collection days where residents may leave off outdated devices that they no longer need. Since these celebrations only occur twice a year, be sure to visit your local government's website for further information.


Retailers

Although this isn't a rule in and of itself, many electronics retailers provide in-store recycling services. To be sure, contact them directly or visit their website.


Objects That One Can Put In The Recycling

It's important to know what the recycling firm will take because not all electronics can be recycled. E-waste items that are frequently recycled include the following:

  • Mobile phones

  • TVs

  • Power cords

  • GPS devices

  • DVD players

  • Laptops

  • Microwave ovens

  • Cameras

  • Desktop computers/PC

  • Speakers and stereo/audio equipment

  • Tablets

  • Paper shredders

  • Printers

  • Batteries (at certain sites)

  • Memory cards
