HOW TO RECYCLE COMPUTER MEMORY
Computer memory recycling is one of the most underrated impacts one can make on the environment today. It is an impact that a significant portion of people in society is in a position to make, right now. For instance, 83% of individuals 18 to 34 years of age now report living in a home or shared space containing a computer, and that number is only expected to grow. Adding up the number of computers that this equates to quickly show shows big of a difference computer memory recycling is poised to make on our earth.
Old, out of use memory or RAM chips contain toxic levels of lead that are poisonous to the planet if not carefully recycled. In addition, these RAM chips also contain precious metals which can be processed and refined for a modest return.
Experts Weigh In
According to a United Nations research group, worldwide efforts are needed to reduce the environmental damage caused by computer equipment. Just creating the computer alone requires ten times the weight of the product in chemicals and fossil fuels, many of which are toxic and help contribute to global warming.
Each year, the world generates over 50 million tons of waste from electronics. According to the EPA, the United States accounts for nearly 10% of that waste.
Both computers and cell phones tend to become outdated quicker than any other product on the market, with rehashes and new improved versions becoming available every single year, because of the exponential rate in which technology evolves. Unfortunately, this high turnover leaves us with a lot of poisonous and harmful materials lying around in landfills. Chemicals like brominated flame retardants and heavy metals like lead and cadmium often present extreme risk to factory workers and others that live near landfill sites where old computers are sent to rot.
You Can Help
While there are very few restrictions or regulations as to safe disposal of used equipment by companies and end users alike, there is still hope in the consumers themselves taking a stance to make sure their materials are recycled properly. That means it is on everyone to seek out the fair and clean recycling of computer memory and take the fight for future generations into their own hands.
It is a common thought to switch off the water while one isn’t using it, turning off lights when they aren’t in the room, and turning off the air conditioning when they leave the house, each for the sake of a better tomorrow. It is time to start looking at the pieces of hazardous material inside of each computer that is thrown away in the same regard. Consider recycling your used computer memory through All Green Electronics Recycling today.
