Electronic Waste (e-Waste) consists of computers, televisions, monitors, laptops, cell phones, DVD players, etc… Electronic discard is one of the fastest growing segments of our nation’s waste, already consisting of 5% of the total waste volume. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an estimated 30 to 40 million PCs will be ready for “end-of-life management” in each of the next few years. E-Waste has a variety of valuable metals and minerals to be recovered. There are very hazardous materials within electronic waste and must be disposed of properly.
