Blue Star Electronics (E-Waste recycling)

recycle electronics and what the options are

The use of electronic products has grown substantially over the past two decades, changing the way and the speed in which we communicate and how we get information and entertainment. Our growing reliance on electronics is illustrated by some remarkable figures. According to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), Americans own approximately 24 electronic products per household.1

EPA is working to educate consumers and others on why it is important to reuse and recycle electronics and what the options are for safe reuse and recycling of these products. State and local governments, manufacturers, and retailers, who are already aware of the pressing need to better manage these materials, are providing more opportunities to recycle and reuse this equipment. Many computer manufacturers, TV manufacturers, and electronics retailers offer some kind of take back program or sponsor recycling events. Many states have passed some sort of legislation to manage end-of-life electronics, and more are expected to follow suit.

What is e-waste?

E-waste, discarded electronics, from computers to cell phones to TVs, are now the fastest-growing waste stream in the U.S. It is also big business: Hundreds of companies buy and sell the discarded components and materials, generating a $6 billion market in the U.S. But e-waste, which contains such toxics as lead and mercury, is often dumped illegally in the U.S. or shipped to developing countries by shady dealers.

ABI Research said that last year the market for e-waste recovery globally was around $5.7 billion. This revenue is described as money generated through reclamation of valuable materials from e-scrap. A number of factors drive this growth, including rising rates of e-waste collection and recycling, larger availability of more cost-effective recycling technologies and “the integration of formal and informal recycling markets in key Asia-Pacific locations.”

“The combined impact of the ongoing global economic recovery and strengthening e-waste recycling legislation worldwide will drive improved recycling/recovery rates in each of the next five years,” said ABI director Larry Fisher in a statement.
