What is the impact of E-waste?

Electronic waste disposal in landfill can greatly affect the environment and our health. Not only does it create hazardous toxins, but these toxins can seep into our oceans and water supplies, endangering marine life and polluting the air we breathe. The presence of heavy metals like lead, cadmium and mercury found in many electronics can also be extremely harmful to human health, causing a range of health issues such as neurological disorders, respiratory problems, and organ damage. Furthermore, improper handling of e-waste can contribute to the release of greenhouse gases, exacerbating climate change. It is essential to adopt proper e-waste recycling practices to mitigate these detrimental effects and promote a sustainable approach to electronic waste management.

What is Electronic Waste?

A large part of that rubbish heap is classified as Electronic waste. Many of these thrown-out electronic devices are not exactly useless; some are still functional and, if further broken down, can be harvested for parts and precious metals. Most of it can be resold or repurposed, and the rest can be recycled into different useful things.

Use an E-waste skip helping the environment

Using an e-waste skip bin is one of the most effective ways to help protect the environment. E-waste skips are designed specifically to collect and contain all types of electronic waste, ensuring that it is disposed of safely and responsibly. Using an e-waste skip, you can reduce the amount of hazardous materials that end up in landfill or, worse, our oceans.

Get Involved in Our Smart E-waste Recycling Process

The increase in electronic waste consumption involves everyone. Users often discard barely a year-old devices in favour of the latest model. The demand for heavy metals for batteries and hazardous elements for micro components significantly strains the environment. The production process for electronics has adverse effects on the environment.

Getting Rid of E-Waste

It has become commonplace to dispose of household electronic items rather than repair these devices. There was a time when families had the same TV for more than 10 years. Still, due to the advancement of technology and consumer demand, the convenience of buying a new model simply outweighs the cost of repairs, creating this consistent throwaway culture we now live in.

Simple Ways to Minimise Electronic Waste

We can do our share in curbing the further rise of electronic waste. Here’s a list of things to keep in mind when dealing with our old electronics:

Repair devices when possible

Give your old electronic device a chance, hire a trusted repairman, and give your appliance a second life.

Organise the electronics that you have

With every new model we buy each year, you might have forgotten where you’ve stashed the old one. Organise the existing ones and tally which ones to keep for actual use or to donate. Some people wouldn’t mind having an old or extra mobile phone.

Resell or donate old devices

There are resellers that broker parts between buyers and sellers, and further into the chain, these resellers sell these used electronics in bulk. Bulk buyers then either donate or sell electronics to other countries, businesses or non-profit organisations. As these bulk resellers are also into material recovery and processing, electronic devices have small amounts of valuable materials. If you disassemble microchips and plates, you can yield elements such as gold, copper, titanium, and platinum. Also, a fun fact here, 1 ton of electronic waste contains at least 200 grams of gold. So who says there’s nothing valuable in electronic waste?


Don’t make a habit of creating a pile of unused or obsolete electronics. But sure, it’s easy to store them in the basement or the garage, but once these electronics start to corrode from damage, they might start leaking toxic substances into your household. So ensure you recycle regularly or get a 1300 Skip Bins hire to deal with your electronic waste and its proper disposal.

Use a manufacturer’s takeback program

Some electronic brands, retailers and stores have eco-friendly programs with which they have used or broken electronics previously bought from their store collected and taken directly to a waste management facility. When you buy a product from an electronic shop, ask if they have a takeback program and how you can sign up for it in the future. So if a retailer won’t take it back, opt for our cheap skip hire.

Go for Energy-Rated Devices

Some countries have appliances rated through an Energy Star Program with stickers touting their low per-hour consumption charges. This means the appliance is not just eco-friendly but energy efficient, saving you money in the long run.

Keep your Data Online

Unlike before, you don’t need lots of storage devices, and as a reminder, always erase your personal information before recycling your memory sticks and data storage devices. Remember, the cloud is our new best friend when it comes to saving data. And now, with popular options such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and Flickr, you can now easily store large amounts of data on the Internet. Plus, you’ll feel much better knowing your family photos or videos have backups online.

By being mindful of these steps, we can help divert and manage thousands of kilograms of electronic waste from our landfills. The important thing to remember is that all kinds of electronic waste can be recycled. Thus to prevent any harm to the environment, those electronic wastes that contain toxic and hazardous materials can be disposed of properly by a skip bin hire.
