E-Waste Solutions That Benefit Our Planet

Rumors are that the newest Iphone (#7) will be released after the summer. Are you going for the upgrade? Thought about what to do with your current model? What about other devices that you stop(ped) using? The term electronic waste, or e-waste for short, is relatively new (the eighties). Although most people might be familiar with this term and have a general idea of what is viewed as electronic waste, there is still a lot that people don’t know or realize when it comes to this topic.

Did you know that if you get yourself the newest iPhone and leave your old model on the shelf indefinitely it is technically already e-waste?

What Is E-Waste?

Electronic waste (e-waste) refers to all electronic or electrical appliances and devices that are being cast aside. Important is the intent to not use a specific form of equipment any longer. The reason why does not matter. It can be that the appliance or device does not function properly or at all. An upgrade could also be a reason. When an electronic or electrical form of equipment is still in use, but the owner is planning on donating, selling or recycling it already counts as e-waste.
