Take your e-waste out of the bin

The primary motivation for waste disposal is environmental and public health safety. Garbage and waste will pollute the air and water. Garbage spoilage often produces poisonous gases, which are mixed with air and can affect human respiration. Now, let’s move on to electronic waste (e-waste), its characteristics, and how to dispose of e-waste using smart waste management solutions.

Electronic waste includes all electronic products and appliances that have reached the end of their useful lives or have become obsolete due to the introduction of new technologies.

49 million tons of e-waste were generated in 2012 with the US contributing the most. 

obsolete electronic devices

Unfortunately, most people simply toss out obsolete electronic devices like the rest of their trash, which ends up in landfills, polluting the atmosphere further due to hazardous materials. In fact, all electronic waste contains hazardous chemicals including:

  • Mercury
  • Beryllium
  • Brominated flame retardants

At that point, it is quite crucial to accomplish the e-waste pickup process in a most optimal and environment-friendly manner. To succeed this, electronic recycling management software enables electronic waste recyclers to collect and generate reports that meet government reporting requirements, such as the sources, types, weight, and quantity of materials received, material movement, downstream vendor shipping records, and so on, by entering critical data during daily operations.
