E-Waste (electronic waste) refers to a discarded electronic, electrical or battery operated good. Typically, items include computers, computer related equipment, mobiles phones, servers and continues to a vast range of electronic items.
E-Waste is growing three times faster than our general waste output, as of 2018 e-waste can no longer be shipped to China for disposal, and as of July 2019, it is no longer legally be sent to landfill in Victoria.
The majority of e-waste contains heavy metals, like lead and mercury, along with chlorofluorocarbons and flame retardants which attack the ozone layer. These chemicals cause contamination of our water, land and air. With e-waste accounting for 70% of the toxic chemicals in landfills, improperly disposed e-waste is causing non-reversible environmental pollution.
