The strength of Earth Day is to dispose of electronics responsibly

Earth-Day-2015Earth Day was the genius idea of Senator Gaylord Nelson, in 1970. Earth Day now draws millions of participants to a day and weekend dedicated to celebrating the earth’s environment. Many celebrate Earth Day by spending time outdoors planting trees, cleaning up in parks, going on nature walks, and learning more about our precious Earth and how we can help preserve her beauty and resources.

With April 22 designated as Mother Earth Day, activities are happening all around the Bay Area, where parents and children have the opportunity to immerse themselves in fun deeds that celebrate the joy that our planet Earth brings to us.

One way that we, at BlueStar Electronics, encourage the strength of Earth Day is to dispose of electronics responsibly. Dumping technology just anywhere is totally unacceptable, which is why we inspire others to bring in or schedule a pickup where we can claim your spent electronic waste and in many cases, turn it around for reuse.

BlueStar Electronics is your electronic waste company dedicated to Mother Earth and saving her for future generations. Many are uneducated and do not realize the ramifications of disposing waste improperly. By visiting our website at www.bluestarco.com we explain to and educate our customers about how we help clean up the environment, and save Earths’ citizens from illnesses due to toxins that are associated with illegal and unethical dumping of electronics.

Our planet deserves a positive environmental impact, and it’s up to us to bring it!

CalRecycle: California residents disposing less garbage per resident

California residents threw out 4.4 pounds of garbage per day in 2011, a record low, the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) announced.

The rate is calculated by taking the total waste disposed at residential facilities and commercial businesses and dividing that by population. The rate has been calculated since 1989; the state had a high of 6.3 pounds per resident in 2005.

The state’s overall diversion rate remains unchanged from 2010 at 65%, CalRecycle said.

“These rates are proof that we have strong and effective resource management efforts in the state,” CalRecycle Director Caroll Mortensen said in a statement. “Now we have a new goal: 75% recycling statewide. We’re excited to work with local communities and support emerging markets to recycle and divert even more solid waste in the years to come.”

Why is e-waste growing?

E-waste is growing exponentially simply because the market in which these products are produced is also growing rapidly as many parts of the world cross the so called ‘digital divide’. For example, between 2000 and 2005, the Organisation of Economic and Cooperative Development (OECD) notes a 22% growth in Information Communication Technology (ICT) in China1.

Furthermore, China was the 6th largest ICT market in 2006, after the US, Japan, Germany, UK and France.2 This is astounding when one considers that just ten years ago, under 1% of China’s population owned a computer3. Computers are only one part of the e-waste stream though, as we see that in the EU in 2005, fridges and other cooling and freezing appliances, combined with large household appliances, accounted for 44% of total e-waste, according to UNU’s Study supporting the 2008 Review of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive.4 Rapid product innovations and replacement, especially in ICT and office equipment, combined with the migration from analogue to digital technologies and to flat-screen TVs and monitors, for example, are fuelling the increase. Economies of scale have given way to lower prices for many electrical goods, which has increased global demand for many products that eventually end up as e-waste.
