Based on e-Waste disposal rates, Americans throw out $60 Million in gold and silver every year!
- 12.5% of electronic waste is recycled - Source: US EPA
- E-Waste represents 2% of America’s trash in landfills, but it equals 70% of overall toxic waste.
Proper e-Waste recycling is easy...
- Check with local retailers - many offer free take-back programs backed by certified recyclers.
- Find a local R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.
"Recycling is what we do when we're out of options to avoid, repair, or reuse the product first. Firstly: Reduce. Don't buy what we don't need. Repair: Fix stuff that still has life in it. Reuse: Share. Then, only when you've exhausted those option, recycle."
- Annie Leonard, Greenpeace USA
