Electronics recycling

 

Electronics recycling and global warming prevention.

What does global warming has to do with recycling of electronic waste or any other recycling?

Paper recycling - We all know that paper recycling obviously will reduce the cut down of trees, according to the state of Minnesota web site, 1 tons of recycled will save about 17 trees from being cut down and each tree helps reduce global warming by capturing and holding carbon dioxide.

Electronics recycling - according to the EPA's website, In 2006, over 28.8 million pounds of electronic items were collected by the states of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. If the 28.8 million pounds (14,421 tons) are recycled or reused, then the environmental benefits equate to reducing emissions of 8,877 Metric Tons of Carbon Equivalent (MTCE) into the atmosphere, thus decreasing the amount of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) that contribute to global warming.

It seem more and more that recycling in general does have some affect on global warming, however, it is very hard to say how much, it will probably take more time until scientists will have more accurate answer, but for sure recycling seem to be the right direction to go to.
