Restoring electronics is a much greener solution than further contributing to the global e-waste problem. The amount of world-wide electronic waste, commonly referred to as e-waste, is an astounding amount of 50 million tonnes a year with an annual growth of 4-5%. According to the EPA, e-waste is the fastest growing municipal waste stream in America and accounts for 70% of the hazardous waste that is deposited into landfills. Only 12.5% of e-waste is actually recycled. E-waste that is sent to landfills and incinerators is mostly burned releasing harmful toxins into the air we breathe.
- The most common hazardous electronic items include LCD desktop monitors, LCD televisions, Plasma Televisions, TVs and computers with Cathode Ray Tubes.
- E-waste contains hundreds of substances, of which many are toxic. This includes mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium, selenium, chromium, and flame retardants
