Electronic waste is largely toxic, and it can have several negative effects on the environment. Here are important considerations to reduce electronic waste.

Electronic waste is also known as e-waste. When you improperly dispose of e-waste, it can cause adverse environmental effects, as a large portion of electronic waste is toxic. Such toxins can leak into the air, soil, and groundwater; which damages the atmosphere and poisons the Earth — possibly contaminating the food chain. Unfortunately, due to the rise in production of electronic products, the damaging effects of e-waste are also increasing.

There are methods to reduce e-waste.

Repair before replacing

If your electronic device stops working, think twice before tossing it in the trash. If there’s a chance you can repair the product, you should always whether its worth it. Repairing your device is usually less expensive than purchasing a new one, and it will also reduce the amount of electronics that end up in landfills. In addition, fewer products will need to be produced to keep up with the demand for new electronics, which will save energy and resources. As such, purchasing only the necessary replacement parts to repair your device is the best option. Learn from Louis Rossmann, and you’ll be wary about seeking an official Apple store for your repairs. Of course, if your device is just plain obsolete for your needs, you may have to get a new device, and try the following to reduce electronic waste.

Trade-in

Certain companies allow you to trade in your old device before purchasing a new one. This option will help protect the planet by preventing old products from going straight to the landfill. Plus, you could save money, as some companies will offer you a reduced price on your new device for trading in your old one.

Sell

Ideally, you should avoid purchasing a new device unless it’s absolutely necessary. In some cases, however, you may want to replace your device while it’s still usable. If your device still works but you want a new one, don’t just throw it away—someone else may want it. By selling your device, someone gets to purchase your electronic at a reduced price, you make some money, and one less electronic device ends up in a landfill. It’s a win-win-win.

Donate

If you want to take a more charitable route, donating your usable electronics is a great way to keep them out of the landfill. Just make sure to clear all your information off your devices to protect your identity and privacy before donating.

Recycle properly

If your product is beyond repair, make sure to recycle it properly. Simply tossing it in your trash may be convenient, but doing so can result in hazardous waste and prevent valuable electronic parts from being reused. There are many electronic recycling programs to choose from, including programs from large corporations such as Apple and Samsung.
