Moorabbin, Victoria — 12/20/2017 — A Tech now proudly collects free of charge any bulk quantity of items such as laptops, computers, tablets, printers, faxes and electronic items, to be recycled within Melbourne. They also buy bulk lots of up-to-date laptops from businesses wishing to sell them.
Electronic waste or E-waste describes discarded electrical or electronic devices. Used electronics which are destined for reuse, resale, salvage, recycling, or disposal are also considered e-waste.
Many people don't know of anywhere to take their no longer used or needed equipment and so they simply trash it and send it landfill. A Tech Computer Recycling Melbourne E-Waste collection fills that gap. Any computer or electronic equipment given gets re-used and re-purposed. Anything that can't gets broken down and recycled properly.
The electronic industry is one of the most important industries in the world. It has grown steadily in recent decades, generates a great number of jobs, promotes technological development and, at the same time, fuels a high demand for raw materials that are considered scarce or rare (e.g. aluminum, copper, gold, silver, plastics, and ferrous metals).
This development affects the environment in two ways: first through the large and growing amount of equipment that is discarded annually, and second; through the extraction of natural raw materials to supply the demand of the new equipment industry. Both can be measured by the amount of equipment that is produced and discarded annually by many countries.
The main manufacturers and generators of electronic waste are considered to be developed or developing countries. Estimates indicate that about 40 million tons of this waste are generated each year, or approximately 5% of all solid waste generated in the world. Another study estimated that globally, 20 – 50 million tons of waste electronic equipment are discarded annually. The high value of the computer recycling subset of electronic waste can help pay the cost of transportation for a larger number of worthless pieces than can be achieved with display devices, which have less scrap value.
Recycling raw materials from end-of-life electronics is the most effective solution to the growing e-waste problem. Most electronic devices contain a variety of materials, including metals that can be recovered for future uses. By dismantling and providing reuse possibilities, intact natural resources are conserved and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is avoided. Additionally, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the manufacturing of new products.
Another benefit of recycling e-waste is that many of the materials can be recycled and re-used again. E-waste is a growing waste stream. By recycling these items, landfill space is conserved.
Benefits of recycling are extended when responsible recycling methods are used. A Tech Computer Recycling Melbourne E-Waste collection aims to minimize the dangers to human health and the environment that disposed and dismantled electronics can create. They ensure best management practices of the electronics being recycled.
