What is e waste?
It’s a good question and very easy to explain; think of electrical items such as TV’s, computers, mobile phones and laptops, generally things that come out of our office, not the kitchen or the bathroom.
With Business Clean Up Day coming up on the 28th February in Australia, we thought it was a great time to tell you about e waste and how we can rethink, recycle and reduce items like this being dumped on the side of the road.
Did you know
In 2007-08 3.17 million new televisions and computer products were sold in Australia, and 16.8 million units reached the end of their life that year?
Did you know that 84% were disposed of to landfill?
Did you know in Australia we have 8 000 000 000 mobile phones cluttering out cupboards!
We can not change what happened in the past but we can rethink our future
