E-Waste (short for electronic-waste) is electrical equipment that no longer works and can’t be repaired, like computers, printers, fax machines, scanners, mobile phones, TV’s, monitors and electrical accessories like keyboards, power supplies and cables.
E-Waste is one of the fastest growing problem waste streams, with many items often containing valuable resources like rare and precious metals that need to be recycled. 💻🖨🖥
