Benefits of E-Waste Recycling
i. Protects the environment
Recycling the waste from electronics saves space ie landfills and prevents environmental pollution caused by the toxins. Recycling also reduces the need for landfills in the first place.
ii. Recycling is good for the economy
Goods made from recycled materials use less water, create less pollution, and uses less energy. Recycling also reduces the production costs of goods by avoiding manufacturing components from scratch.
iii. Reuse of resources
Electronics contain a lot of components that can be reutilized sometimes without any processing, saving
resources and energy required for initial manufacturing. A lot of big companies have their own recycling facility where they dispose of electronics for future reuse, and this is something that all big companies should strive for.
