1. You make the most of the limited resources we have.
Most of Earth’s natural resources used to manufacture electronic items come in limited quantities. By recycling your electronics, you’re providing materials that can be reused or regenerated into another product.
2. It’s better for the environment and human wellbeing.
E-waste recycling prevents toxic chemicals and materials from polluting our water, air and soil. The fumes, particles or remnants of electronic waste can also pose a risk to wellbeing. Consumption or inhalation of chemicals or waste remnants can cause illnesses and diseases in serious case scenarios.
3. You’re helping address the landfill problem.
The landfill is a big problem globally and every country is looking for ways to reduce the amount of waste produced and dumped. By recycling your e-waste, you are diverting the product from going to landfill and alleviating the issue.
4. You help create more jobs.
Growing the e-Waste recycling sector will require more hands. More people are needed for the pick up, collection, recycling and regenerative process. This means that more workers will play a part in the circular economy.
