Electronic recycling, also known as e-waste recycling, is the responsible disposal and reusing of old or broken electronic devices. This can include anything from computers and smartphones to televisions and kitchen appliances. One of the main reasons electronic recycling is so important is because of the toxic materials used in the making of these devices.
Many electronic waste disposals, such as lead and mercury, can harm both human and animal health conditions and the environment, to say the least, if not properly disposed of. On the other hand, many electronic devices contain valuable materials such as gold, silver, and copper that can be recovered and reused through recycling.
