Did you know that worldwide, we dispose of over 40 million tons of electronic waste each year, only a small fraction of which is recycled or discarded in a way that minimizes the risk of harming people and the environment?
Did you know that electronic waste, while only a small percentage of what ends up in our landfills, contains over 70% of the toxic heavy metals that land there?
By changing the way you approach electronics at the end of their useful life, you can have an important impact on this global problem…Whether as a consumer who has a device to recycle, as an educator who wants to inform others, or as a student who wants to understand more, we invite you to explore these pages and BE a better part of WEEE!
