Why Recycle e-Waste?

Around 10% of the world’s gold and 30% of silver goes into making electronics, but only 15% to 20% of the 50 million tons of e-waste created every year are recycled. Besides plastic and glass, electronic devices contain base and special metals such as cobalt, tin and antimony as well as precious metals like silver, gold, and platinum, all of which can be fully recovered.

The National Resources Defense Council in the US estimates that 10 ounces of gold can be extracted from every ton of printed circuit boards, while more than 100 tons of gold ore needs to be processed to get the same amount. The estimated recoverable metal value from e-waste is about US$370 million, including US$150 million from discarded printed circuit boards alone.

e-Waste in the U.S.

  • Americans spent $71 billion on telephone and communication equipment in 2019, nearly five times what they spent in 2010 even when adjusted for inflation.
  • Americans now own approximately 24 electronic products per household.
  • Only 19 states have laws banning electronics from the regular trash. In states without such rules, like Nevada, electronics often end up in garbage and recycling bins.
  • Recycling 1 million laptop computers can save enough energy to run 3,500 U.S. homes for a year.
  • In the United States and Canada, every person produces roughly 20kg of e-waste annually.
