E-Waste Management: 7 Steps To Controlling 7 Toxins In The Corporate World

More than 50 million tonnes of electronic waste (e-waste) – disposed of electrical or electronic appliances from refrigerators, washing machines, microwaves and cell phones to televisions and computers - will be generated in 2013. E-waste is by far the world’s fastest growing refuse stream and yet only one fifth - ten million tonnes - will be collected for recycling by year’s end.

It is estimated that in developing high-income countries such as the constituent states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), this number is even smaller. Across the six state conglomerate up to eight per cent of all municipal solid waste (MSW) falls into the e-waste category with barely five per cent of e-waste reaching a recycling facility.

In this piece we take a look at how businesses, both big and small, can contribute to e-waste management and limit the effects of seven deadly toxins associated with electronic goods.
