Electrical waste (e-waste) is the fastest growing type of waste in the world.
e-waste - a local and national issue
E-waste often contains dangerous metals and other substances that can be toxic to the environment and to human health if disposed of or handled inappropriately. Some may also contain valuable and scarce resources that should be recovered and recycled.
Items that can be recycled include TVs and monitors (CRT and LCD), desktop PCs and laptops, modems, computer speakers, printers, scanners, fax machines, mobile phones, mice and household appliances.
At a commercial level it is becoming increasingly important to consider the entire lifecycle of new or replacement computers by including either disposal costs or utilising an Operating Lease where the equipment is returned to the lease provider, who typically has established practices for the re-use or recycling of hardware.
For more information on either lease solutions and provider or the responsible disposal of computer related hardware talk to one of the BlueBerry Bunch today.
