The Rise In Electronic Recycling
Before the age of “smart” devices, people didn’t have many electronics or devices. The few they might have had, like a TV set or kitchen appliances, were simple but meant to last long; there was no need for electronic recycling. In this new age of technology, cellphone devices are changed out or upgraded often. Laptops or computers also usually last 6-7 years before wearing out. With this new cycle of upgrade and “smarter” devices, people are cycling through a lot more devices and e-waste is becoming a serious issue.
The scale of e-waste in 2020 is large if you consider how inexpensive and readily available electronics are across the world.
