Discard of Electronic Waste Properly

When electronics such as refrigerators, stereos, computers, televisions and other common electronic products are unwanted or no longer function and must be discarded they are referred to as electronic waste.

Inside several of these electronics some of the components are known to contain extremely hazardous materials like aluminum, copper, plastics, ferrous metals and other potentially toxic substances known to pose serious threats to human health and the environment.

Electronic Waste Disposal Best PracticesElectronic Waste

Though it is hard to generalize and pinpoint the material content of every single device people should still exercise proper disposal or practice recycling E-waste to play their part in ensuring the health and safety of the public and environment.

With that said the global demand for more and more advanced forms of technology is constantly increasing resulting in a surge in E-Waste production. An estimated 50 million tons of E-waste are produced each year. In the US alone discards up to 30 million computers and over 100 million phones annually.

In effort to deal with this authorities have created legislation such as the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and agencies like the United States Environmental Protection Agency that govern and regulate the proper disposal of waste throughout the country. In addition  to further enforce safe disposal practices government reserves the right to impose heavy penalties or even possible jail time to violators.

In the state of California to better manage this growing challenge the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 was enacted. This established the covered electronic waste (CEW) recycling program to aggressively handle the cost of reducing E-waste production.

Persons throughout the country can play their part by recycling, selling or giving away electronics that they no longer need and for products beyond repair again recycling is the best alternative. Instead of resorting to improper and illegal e- waste practices locate an organization or waste removal service that will remove and recycle any unwanted electronics.

A person may not know how or what is the best way to recycle or even dispose of their e-waste so to help with this issue waste removal services have specially trained personnel and all the necessary equipment to manage all of your e- waste removal and recycling. Furthermore they also facilitate the transport of items where there are later processed.

Over time this approach along with effective, initiatives and management has enabled government and citizens alike to make a positive impact as it relates to the reduction of E-waste.  It is also critical that every citizen play their part whenever necessary to ensure that their communities, country and the environment as a whole is kept safe and healthy.  Contact us for more information.

Having a wholesome and positive environment can be ultimately achieved in many ways some of which can occur from the domestic household to the industrial level. Recycling and reusing products properly, disposing of hazardous waste materials and using bio-degradable  and environmentally friendly products are all ways to promote eco-friendly practices.

Positive garbage disposal practices along with strict oversight from the California Department of Recycling and Recovery essentially encourages citizens to maintain a clean and safe environment. They also serve to implement and enforce regulations that aim to prevent  contamination, pollution or any major health issues.

For example the Alameda County Waste Management Authority in collaboration with California State Law emphasizes that businesses or family dwellings consisting of five or more units, generating up to four cubic yards of waste or more weekly must have recycling services.

Sometimes a person may not know how to recycle or even have proper facilities in place to dispose of their waste (available garbage receptacles/ dumpsters) so to help with this issue there are waste removal services who come in and do this for you. These guys are specially trained and have all the necessary equipment to manage all of your waste removal and recycling.

In some cities residential garbage is typically collected from homes twice weekly to be processed and disposed. These services not only relate to the gathering of solid waste and recyclable materials but also the transport of these materials after collection to a specified location where it is then processed.

What can you do to help keep the environment safe? Well for householders persons should try to adopt more eco friendly alternatives within their everyday lives. Recycle and reuse as much as you can as it encourages ‘green living’ which helps to save money and increases space in landfills.

Persons can also utilize organic materials like yard debris or food scraps for gardens and small animals but one very important thing persons should always remember to do is to dispose of hazardous household waste safely as it can pose serious health threats or cause injury to others. For example fluorescent light bulbs, batteries, household chemicals (cleansers, pesticides, fertilizers), medical waste (mercury thermometers, needles and syringes), auto products and paints should all be disposed of very carefully in order to safeguard the lives of the persons living in your community.

In addition along with the state of California’s initial approach and effective initiatives to the management and recycling of waste, it is also critical that every citizen play their role whenever necessary to ensure that waste is either properly disposed of or recycled in effort to keep the our communities, the country and the environment safe and healthy.
