- Unwanted and obsolete electronics are rapidly filling the world’s landfills. The EPA estimates that 60 million metric tons of electronic waste are thrown out each year, with the US accounted for 9 million of those tons in 2012. The United Nations predicts that by 2017, the amount of electronic waste worldwide (expected to reach 65.4 million tons) will weigh the equivalent of 200 Empire State Buildings or 11 Great Pyramids of Giza. Though electronic waste makes up only 2% of all waste in landfills, it accounts for nearly 70% of all toxic waste due to its high concentrations of mercury, lead, beryllium, and other harmful substances. Every year, 14,000,000 cell phones are thrown out, accounting for 80,000 lbs. of lead that then leaches into the environment.
- We can lessen the impact electronic waste has on the environment by reducing our consumption of electronics. Recycling 1 million laptops saves the energy equivalent to powering 3,657 homes each year.
- We can also help by reusing electronics. More than $60 million worth of gold and silver ends up in US landfills each year in the form of components of thrown out cell phones. These metals can be used in the refurbishing process to fix and update other electronics. By purchasing one refurbished computer instead of a new one, you help save the more than 530 lbs. of fossil fuels, 48 lbs. of chemicals, and 1.5 tons of water needed to make a new computer.
