E-waste recycling is fast becoming one of the hottest topics in modern industry. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), more than 40 million PCs will be ready for end-of-life management in each of the next few years. And as technology continues to progress at rapid pace, this number will continue to grow in the years to come. While technological advancements are necessary to the growth of industry and economy, the excess hardware that’s left behind can be potentially dangerous to the world’s eco-system.
When computer hardware is disposed of through regular waste channels, it ends up in landfills where over time it breaks down and releases toxins and other dangerous chemicals into the ground which ultimately makes its way into the world’s waterways.
