Where Does E-waste End Up?

ELECTRONICS

Every year, people throw away millions of tons of electronics which can end up in landfill, leaching toxins into the earth and wasting precious resources.

Here in the UK, the crossed out wheelie bin shows that an item should be recycled and NOT put into landfill. Electronics can go to certified waste facilities where they can be sorted, refurbished and reused or broken down for parts.

Next time you are ready to toss your printer ink or batteries in the bin, remember they can actually be recycled!

WHERE DOES E-WASTE END UP?

When you get a new smartphone, computer, or tablet, you have to dispose of the device that you no longer need. But, where does your electronic waste go once you get rid of it? It turns out that it depends on how you choose to dispose of it. Here are some of the places your waste could turn up:

Landfills

If you choose to toss your old electronics in the trash instead of disposing of them properly, they will most likely end up in a landfill. Electronic waste currently accounts for 2% of the trash found in U.S. landfills, however it also accounts for 70% of the overall toxic waste.

Hi and a happy new year to you all. My apologies for not filling this out sooner but just been so busy. Can't complain at all about your services, you always try and accommodate our needs as its hard to judge when our bins will be full but you always help us out. And as for your representative Mr Lee Perry, well........ what can one say....... he's salt of the earth and always been upfront with me and he's always been there at the end of the phone with help and advice when needed, even when I've contacted him over the weekend or at alton towers. In a nutshell I'd recommend recycling management to anyone, 10 out of 10 all around. Cheers, Tim Aucott

Generally very good from the office to drivers. Confirmination of collection time / day could be slightly improved but overall very happy with the service.

In most cases we have been serviced well. Lee is and has always been very quick to respond to any of our issues.

The main issue for ourselves has been failed collections other than that things have gone very well over the last 12 months.

We have used RML across many projects for years, skip collection for my scrap metal. They can be trusted and payment is always prompt. They offer great service and the drivers are extremely helpful.
