Waste export no longer fits our times and yet it is practiced on a global scale. Electronic waste is one of the world’s fastest growing waste streams. The United Nations estimates the amount of electronic waste generated annually to be over 72 million tons. Regulations are being enacted to ensure e-waste is recycled and disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner rather than being shipped to landfills. There is a lot of value in e-waste, recycling is not only good for the environment, but an alternative source of both precious and base metals.
