What is E-Waste?

The United Nations Environment Programme defines “e-waste” as: “discarded electrical or electronic equipment, such as refrigerators, air conditioners, televisions, personal computers (PCs), printers, fax machines, scanners, and mobile phones.”

E-waste contains valuable resources that should not be allowed to go to waste and should be extracted for reusing and recycling purposes.

The Current State of Electronic Waste:

Electronic waste is one of the common types of junk out there. Here are a few of the latest facts about it:
  1. Electronics consist of a wide variety of plastic, metal, glass, and other types of resources. With the growing need for raw materials, most discarded equipment is not treated as waste but as a valuable source of resources.
  2. The United States of America generates 6.92 million tons of e-waste every year.
  3. In a survey, it was found that about an average of half a million tons of computers are thrown away in the US each year.
  4. One ton of e-discarded equipment generates 10 times more greenhouse gas emissions than the equivalent mass of waste coming from municipal solid waste (MSW).
  5. In developed countries, e-waste is usually collected and recycled for the most part. However, in developing countries, this recycling process is not used or even available.
  6. In the case of e-discarded equipment, it is possible to extract valuable resources like rare earth metals such as Yttrium, Scandium, Terbium, etc. for reusing purposes.

Different Types of E-Waste:

Different Types of E-Waste

There are different types of electronic junk that you need to be aware of; they are: 

Personal Computers or PCs: A personal computer is a microcomputer designed for use by one person at a time.

Discarded TVs and Monitors: These are the largest piece of e-waste generated anywhere in the world. They contain toxic materials like lead, mercury and cadmium that are released when this type of electronic equipment is improperly recycled.

Consoles: Consoles include game consoles like GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, and so on. This contains lots of hazardous materials like cadmium, lead, and mercury.

Electronic Hardware: This includes components like motherboards, cables, chargers, and the like.

Small Electronics: They include things like keyboards, mice, cellphones, landline phones, and so on.

Mobile Phones: Mobile phones are among the most common electronic wastes in the world, not just in the United States.

Hazardous Waste Vs. Non-Hazardous Waste:

In general, electronics produce wastes that are considered non-hazardous waste. However, some of them contain materials that are categorized as hazardous metals like mercury, lead, and cadmium.

Non-hazardous electronic waste includes bigger things like monitors, televisions, and computers.

Importance of Recycling E-Waste

While we all now know that e-waste is a huge problem endangering our planet, not many still work towards recycling or reusing it to safeguard the environment. 

Here is why it’s imperative that electronic junk generated is recycled:

  • It helps curb the growing environmental concerns.
  • This process reduces energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and other such pollutants.
  • It minimizes the loss of valuable resources like metal and plastic.
  • Recycling e-waste is not only cost-effective but also an eco-friendly way to protect our environment from hazardous materials.
