Spring Is For Cleaning And That Means E-Waste Disposal [Facts]

Posted by Junk King on Mar 17, 2017 6:48:20 AM

If you are going to be doing some spring cleaning this year it's likely you'll be getting rid of old electronics. And e-waste disposal is a special challenge.

 

The easy thing to do is toss everything in the dumpster or your residential trash bin. Bit what about recycling your e-waste?

With businesses and homeowners facing increased regulations and added fees for e-waste recycling, it may seem easier to simply throw out old electronics. In fact, traditional junk hauling is usually the first option for many people.

However, not only is this often against the law to dispose of most electronics, it is a health hazard because e-waste contains toxic materials that are likely to be detrimental to human health.

For these and a number of other reasons, when it comes to e-waste, you should always look to recycle electronics instead of just throwing them out.

Junk Hauling and E-Waste Disposal: Doing it Right

There are a few issues to consider with e-waste disposal and recycling. Because of the number of laws and regulations, especially in states such as California, many items such as monitors, TVs, and even cell phones cannot be simply tossed in the trash.

What's more, when you want to properly dispose of a computer monitor - particularly any old CRT devices you still have around - the process takes time, effort and money.

E-Waste Recycling Still Falls Behind the Volume of E-Waste

The sheer volume of electronics that are disposed of each year in the United States is overwhelming. For example, almost 1.3 million cell phones are replaced every year! 

Here is an infographic that illustrates some of the key facts about e-waste collection and recycling in the United States:
