Why should you consider a job in the e-waste industry?
- In 2012, an estimated 10,000 computers were disposed of each week across the federal government.
- An estimated 5 million short tons of products were in storage in 2009.
- Approximately 2.37 million short tons of electronics were ready for end-of-life management.
- Approximately 141 million mobile devices were ready for end-of-life management in 2009.
- In 2009, only 25% of electronics were collected for recycling.
By the early 2020's, Pike Research expects that recycling and reuse activity will surpass the annual volume and weight of electronic devices that become electronic waste (e-waste), and thus will play a large part in mitigating the e-Waste crisis. These obsolete electronics can create environmental hazards and legal liabilities and require special handling and disposal.
