Waste Management

Electronic Waste

Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the largest waste streams in the world and is growing exponentially as the demand for more technology grows in our daily and professional lives. Many everyday electronics contain components such as cadmium, hexavalent chromium, mercury, chromium, barium, and beryllium that can pollute water and air resources without proper disposal. These electronics also contain valuable metals that can be used again in another manufacturing process making it important to recycle them to reduce resource consumption and waste.
