Have you ever wondered what happens to your e-waste or electronic waste when you dump them in your regular garbage can? Chances are your old electronic gadgets will either end up in landfills, where it will take a long time to decompose, or it will land up with scrap dealers who use primitive methods to process e-waste. The problem is, disposing of your old gadgets in this manner causes a lot of pollution and releases a number of toxins into the atmosphere that are hazardous to humans. Also, people working with e-waste in various informal e-waste recycling centres across India, do not use any type of protective gear and so fall prey to various diseases and health conditions.
Reasons why you shouldn’t dump your e-waste in your garbage can:
It releases heavy Toxic Components
It contains recoverable material which can be reused
Now, that you know why getting rid of your old electronics and gadgets in your garbage can, is not an option, be a conscious and responsible electronics consumer and recycle your e-waste. Recycling e-waste can go a long way to help secure a greener future. Go Green! Recycle!!
