Ewaste

Ewaste Guidelines

"Electronic waste"" consists of discarded electronic equipment, such as computers, office equipment, games, cell phones, refrigerators, and television sets. Components within those items are manufactured using materials which are harmful to the environment. Exposure to some of these materials, such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants, poses a risk to workers. Many of these materials have a significant reuse value when recycled.

About Ewaste

  • Rapid changes in technology, changes in media (tapes, software, MP3), falling prices, and planned obsolescence have resulted in a fast-growing surplus of electronic waste around the globe.
  • An estimated 50 million tons of Ewaste are produced each year.
  • An estimated 70% of heavy metals in US landfills come from discarded electronics.
  • In the US, 30 million computers are discarded every year.
  • UK figures say 100 million cell phones are discarded each year.

NYS consumers may now recycle electronic waste such as computers, televisions and small electronic equipment in an environmentally responsible manner.
