Do You Know Why E Waste Data Destruction Is Becoming So Big Do you know why e-waste data destruction is becoming so big It is primarily because of the many problems that it poses not just to the developed world but to the developing countries as well. There is a steep rise in the demand for the services of electronic recycling providers because people are waking up to the dangers of e-waste and the way we are discarding them or getting rid of them. Do you know that the USA discards 30 million computers every year This is a very staggering number but it is nothing as compared to hundred million phones that are disposed of in Europe annually. According to an estimate by the Environmental Protection Agency only 15 to 20 of e-waste is currently being recycled and the rest of it is simply going to landfills or incinerators or to developing countries far away from our home.

slide 2:

Needless to mention we all know that electronic waste contains several hazardous chemicals and compounds and also some valuable and scarce materials. Do you know that you can easily find up to 60 elements in complex electronic equipment According to an independent study alone in the US an estimated 70 of heavy metals can be found in discarded electronics that are dumped in our landfills. These are just some of the concerns that the rise in e-waste pile-up is causing at the moment. We need solid policies and rules when it comes to e-waste data destruction. Our electronic recycling providers are going to need all the support and assistance they can get both from our government and the consumer.
