E-Waste: The New Realm of Recycling

Trash can be broken down into three categories. First, you have items that are placed in the garbage truck and sent to the landfill. Second, you have recyclables like aluminum cans, glass, and cardboard. These items are placed in a separate waste bin for delivery to a recycling center.

e-Waste

Then there is e-Waste. Or, to expand on the shortened word -- electronic waste. To you, this means your smartphones, televisions, computers, and other equipment considered part of the Internet of Things (IoT). These items do not go to the landfill. Nor do they go to the recycling center with your newspapers. Instead, they go to a separate facility that handles IT disposal.

Why the Separation

There are two reasons these items are separated from the rest. First, they're toxic. Not the surfaces. Instead, what's inside them. Many e-Waste items feature caustic chemicals within the circuitry or the batteries that keep them powered. When placed in a landfill, corrosion can seep in. And when this happens, the chemicals have the potential of leaking out and seeping into the ground. The second reason is Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Despite your screen not working, your hard drive or SIM card can be okay. And that's prime eating for those who deal in information theft. What e-Waste companies like Greentec do is make sure your electronics neither leak nor contain any remnants of your data. For the latter, they perform a rigorous and trackable process to wipe all data from your equipment. When done, they notify you with the exact details.

How do I Recycle my e-Waste

Simple. Perform a browser search for e-waste Toronto. You'll find a number of nearby locations that can help you out. Depending on the waste you have, you can either drop it off or have the company pick it up. By the way, e-Waste organizations aren't simply for individuals. They're used by large companies to clear data from laptops and smart devices so they can be reused. If you haven't considered this for your business, look into it as soon as possible.
