The Impact of E-Waste

There are an estimated 55 million unused mobile devices sitting idle in drawers and cupboards across Britain today. Not only could these devices be recycled or reused, but the valuable materials in those devices hold value such as gold, palladium, silver, and copper.

Just 17% of all global e-waste is documented to be recycled each year, meaning huge amounts of valuable and recoverable materials are likely dumbed and burned. It is estimated that at least £7.9 billion worth of valuable materials is dumped each year and polluting the planet.

To avoid these devices being improperly disposed of businesses are legally obliged to recycle e-waste separately from general waste.

As part of the S2S Group, Glasgow Computer Recycling can now offer its customers a responsible way of disposing of mobile phones.
