Avoid Being Wasteful With Your E-Waste This Year
Why Your New Year's Resolutions Should Include Proper E-Waste Disposal
The holidays are over and we’re already through the first month of the year. You likely received some new electronic gift over the holidays. Possibly a Smart Home device to make daily chores a little easier or perhaps you got the newest version of your phone. If so, this is an excellent time to decide what your priorities will be for the next year, including how long you want to hold onto electronics and how you can responsibly dispose of old or unused ones to prevent electronic waste, or e-waste, from building up in landfills.
Despite the fact that E-Waste is recyclable, the dangers it poses to the habitat of living organisms within the community are long-lasting and extremely toxic. The majority of electronics contain hazardous materials that can be very harmful if they get into the wrong hands or when disposed improperly. These materials, such as “mercury, brominated flame retardants (BFR), and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), or hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs),” could seep into soil and water if the devices are improperly disposed of in a landfill.
