With the rise of technology comes a simultaneous rise in electronic waste (e-waste). It is estimated that in 2021, the volume of e-waste is set to rise to a colossal 52.2 million metric tonnes. As a business that truly believes that the world can be more sustainable, we find this a truly shocking statistic, especially because of the fact that when electronic waste is discarded into landfill, toxic materials seep into groundwater, causing a detrimental effect to both wildlife and those in developing countries. It is because of this, that our company carries a 0% landfill policy, pledging to resell or recycle all of the products that come through our door appropriately.
As well as having a detrimental effect on our eco-systems and wildlife, e-waste also affects the economy. Collectively, the world throws away over £50billion worth of e-waste annually and for every 1 million mobile phones that are recycled, 35,274 lbs. of copper, 772 lbs. of silver, 75 lbs. of gold, and 33 lbs. of palladium can be recovered. This, of course, leads any business to question how to attain some of this value from their discarded e-waste and the answer is simple. Book a collection with us! With no upfront costs, our team conveniently collect, data sanitise, (to government standards) and recycle/resell your “e-waste” back into the circular economy.
