If you have any old electronics in storage because you’re not sure what to do with them, you're not alone. This is what’s known as ‘electronic waste’ or ‘e-waste.’ The ongoing challenge of how best to dispose of used and unwanted electronics isn’t a new one, however, the number of electronics being discarded today is growing considerably. We generate around 40 million tons of e-waste every year, worldwide. That’s like throwing away 800 laptops every second.
Businesses of all sizes produce e-waste, so businesses of all sizes need to be part of the solution. Irresponsible management of e-waste can have serious implications on both the environment and your bottom line. To manage e-waste correctly, you first need to know what it is and what options are available to your business to minimise the creation of e-waste.
By implementing effective e-waste management practices and taking responsibility, you are taking steps to minimise your impact on the environment and create a better future for people and the planet.
