E Waste Recycling In Chattanooga

Let’s talk e-waste factoids. The Environmental Protection Agency put out a report in 2007 (the last time they did this) entitled “Management of Select Electronic Products in the United States.”  According to the findings, there were 2.25 million tons of “televisions, cell phones and computer products” that were tossed on the scrap heap that year. Of that amount only 18% were actually recycled leaving a whopping 82% dumped into landfills. A vast majority of those e-waste items could end up leaking cadmium, lead and nickel into the top soil and water supply if they are left to rot in a landfill. That’s not a good thing.

The report also found that even though only 2% of municipal waste can be considered e-waste it is also a category that is growing twice as fast as any type of garbage. You can see why when you match that stat up with the one from the Consumer Electronics Association. According to those number crunchers there are at least 24 electronic products in every household. How many plug in products are operating in your home?

Here in Tennessee there are around 175 collection sites available for residents to drop off their e-waste. The trick is finding those places that are close to you and actually getting your stuff to the drop off center. That’s a lot to fuss with especially if you have a busy schedule. Is there a better way? As it turns out there is and that would be hiring Junk King Chattanooga.
