Concern for the environment grows every year as landfills continue to be overloaded and toxic waste becomes a wide-spread issue. While there are several concerns regarding the overflow of landfills, electronic waste (e-waste) is actually responsible for 70% of toxic waste production. Every year nearly 50 million metric tons of e-waste is disposed of at landfills instead of being recycled and reused, which has caused damage to the land and people throughout the world.
What makes e-waste so dangerous? When deposited in a landfill instead of properly recycled or disposed of, many forms of e-waste can release toxic gases and metals into the environment. These metals such as beryllium, lead, brominated flame retardants, mercury, and cadmium can then react with air and soil to produce toxic waste that is as damaging to our health as it is to our environment.
