E-Waste Wednesday

With technology developing rapidly, many electronics are being bought and quickly discarded as newer models become available. Because of this, the quantity of e-waste produced globally is growing fast and is only set to increase as newer and newer versions of things like cell phones and computers and produced. Like any of the items looked at over Waste Reduction Week, this throw-away model is not sustainable. A few simple tips can help you to reduce your electronic waste:

  • Keep your electronics longer instead of quickly upgrading to the most current model
  • Repair broken electronics, when possible, instead of discarding
  • Recycle your electronics instead of sending to landfill
