Why Electronic Waste Is A Problem Electronic waste is very quickly shading the planet Earth. Already more than 51 million tonnes of electronic waste is being produced every year. There is no option in the upcoming future which may help us in decreasing the numbers. However electronic recycling is the way which can help us in limiting the side- effects of electronic waste. Except for problems with human health the cases of data theft are also increasing quickly. People throwing their storage devices carelessly may face a struggle in future. The sad part of the whole story is no one is paying attention to the issue. The manufacturing companies are producing millions of devices without any hassle. Also with the help of technology the companies are focusing on making the Electronic devices handy. To increase their sales they’re designing devices which can be only used once. After the end of life hardware destruction the customers have to purchase new ones. By hiring an electronic recycling provider the problem can be countered. No one knows about the events taking place on the dark net. In many cases the federal government’s cybercrime officials are unable to trace these hackers working on the dark net. That’s because of Virtual private network VPN. A VPN

basically encrypts the information of the network. For example in normal connection the IP address is easily tracked by the cybercrime department. But after installing a VPN the information which helps in tracking is encrypted. Without the encryption key it cannot be disclosed. These are the problems electronic waste is causing us. Below are some steps which may help in countering the problems of electronic waste:  Reduce: The first strategy is to reduce usage. This also means the manufacturing companies should have control over the number of devices which are being produced. Instead of selling the new devices to the customers the companies should focus on repairing the old devices. Currently the companies are working exactly opposite to this. They’re using technology to make the devices handy. All these devices are meant for one-time use. After the usage the customers are forced to buy new products. For example the updates of old models like mobile phones and laptops are stopped. That’s why the customers have to purchase devices of updated configuration. Recently Microsoft states that the company won’t roll out new updates of windows 7. Because of this consumers are purchasing new products.  Reuse: Reuse helps in lowering down the production. However the manufacturing companies are working totally opposite. They don’t let customers reuse even if they want to. The updates are stopped. Also they offer more benefits while purchasing new devices. This is nothing but a part of marketing campaigns to increase sales. Also factually new devices serve better than the old ones. However the problem is easily solved by repairing the methodology. The consumer should be given a chance of updating their old devices at a nominal cost.  Recycle: Recycling methodology helps in recycling the components of any outdated devices. For example processed chemicals are recovered from Scrap cars. This way the Electronic devices don’t end in landfills. Accordingly the problems are countered.
