Business Is Booming
By the EPA’s best estimates, the U.S. creates over 3.4 million tons of e-waste each year, and this is only rising as consumers continue to buy new and upgraded electronics. Most of it is trashed or incinerated, making for an impending crisis of global proportions. There’s always going to be more electronics to be recycled.
On a positive note, the percentage of electronics which is recycled is increasing rapidly. Back in 2000 we only recycled 10.0% of our e-waste. In 2010 it was 19.6%. From there we’ve seen a fast 5% increase year-on-year, as consumers and the government alike realize the importance of recycling. Legislation is forcing companies to comply, and everyone is looking for the most convenient way to recycle their old electronic equipment.
