Recycle Electronics in Washington D.C.


TROUBLESOME E-WASTE

The world is facing various environment related problems like global warming, depleting ozone layer, increased carbon footprint etc. All these problems are being faced globally. Another one which is growing and becoming a matter of serious concern is e-waste or electronics waste. This waste includes those electronics that are no more useful or have been discarded in the urge for to have a new one.

 

These include computers, laptops, printers, CD’s, DVD’s, TV’s, music systems, mobile phones, hard drives and other home and kitchen appliances that are outdated or impaired. These wastes are not just responsible for landfills across the globe but also having a negative impact on human health and environment. These waste electronics include toxic materials including mercury, lead, cadmium, polybrominated flame retardants, barium, and lithium. When these electronics get heated or are burnt they release cancer-producing dioxins into the air that we all breathe. Not only this these toxins leach into groundwater, affecting local aquifers and entering the food chain. The health effects of these toxins on humans include birth defects and damage to the brain, heart, liver, kidney and skeletal system. They will also significantly affect the human body’s nervous and reproductive systems.
