Recycle gadgets with responsibility for a green future
Today, I thought I’d write about something that is close to my heart – Recycling. Each day, we come across new gadgets, like MP3s, cell phones, cameras, computers and other doodads that intend to satiate our thirst for technology. But in a bid to make our lives easy with such tech, we are adding on to the ever-rising harmful e-waste landfills. Since electronics have a short shelf life, usually just a few years until they turn outdated or obsolete, its time to gear up to the need of recycling gadgets. Most electronics can be recycled because they have metal and other materials that are of value to recyclers. But how can you do it appropriately? WasteCare offers a unique recycling and waste management service that enables waste producers from all industrial and business sectors to manage and report their waste, from collection to recovery regardless of the type, volume or location. And WeeeCare, UK’s favourite Compliance Scheme, aims at encouraging reuse and recycling, and minimizing the negative environmental aspects of disposal. Since Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations became effective the waste industry has seen an increase in the amount and variety of electrical waste being collected. WasteCare also has a purpose built re-processing facility for computer and VDU equipment for appropriate Computer Recycling & Disposal.
