Waste Stream

E-Waste

New electronic products are introduced all the time, and today’s big deal quickly becomes yesterday’s news. But don’t throw out old items—recycle them instead.

Fast Facts

Recycle technology responsibly

Electronics are in just about everything these days, and electronic waste (e-waste) needs to be disposed of through the proper channels. Even though it may not feel intuitive to recycle an old phone or computer, it can be done. By not chucking away old electronics, you’re protecting the environment—conserving energy, materials, and emissions.

  • The United Nations estimates that approximately 50 million tons of e-waste are produced each year
  • Recycling one million laptops saves energy equivalent to that used by more than 3,500 U.S. homes in a year
  • According to the EPA, a metric ton of circuit boards contains 40 – 800 times the amount of gold mined from one metric ton in the United States
