    Did you know?

    There's a whole category of waste dedicated to the electronic devices that most of use on a daily basis. But, despite these electronics bringing us so much entertainment, when their lifecycle is over, they can cause serious harm.

    • The category of e-waste is made up of hundreds of different substances, many of which are extremely toxic to humans and the environment. Some examples of such toxins include lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, chromium, selenium, and flame retardants.
    • Every year, more than 300 million computers and 1 billion cell phones are produced.
    • The number of computers and cell phones being produced is expected to grow at about 8% every year.
    • Roughly 12.5% of our e-waste actually gets recycled. The rest goes to incinerators and landfills. If burned, e-waste releases toxic chemicals into the air that can cause damage to the central nervous system.

    Recycling Your E-Waste in Vaughan

    For the more than 312,000 citizens living in Vaughan, e-waste recycling is just now beginning to catch on as more and more facts are released about just how many of our electric devices go to waste. Overall, Canada sends just 12.5% of its electronics to recycling programs every year with the rest ending up in landfills. So, what can people and businesses in Vaughan do to help and why isn’t more being done already?

    As Vaughan Grows, So Does E-Waste

    Vaughan’s economy continues to pull ahead as new infrastructure is developed and foreign interest begins to accumulate in this beautiful region of Ontario. With that said, as more people and businesses move into the area, more e-waste is being produced by the city. Surprisingly, the problem is not the lack of programs to recycle old electronic devices, the real issue is that there is a tremendous lack of awareness about these programs.

    Education Is Key

    Like many other cities, Vaughan is just beginning to recognize how essential it is that we recycle and recover the 90% of components in our electronic devices that can easily be re-used to produce new devices for the market. However, many people and businesses still haven’t been informed about the countless hazards that go along with throwing away old electronics. Many more aren’t sure of the impact that recycling just a single device can make.

    Businesses Can Take Acton Today

    The good news? While education is still a massive undertaking that countless organizations are working to check off their list in Vaughan, your business can take action today and begin making a real impact on the environment and economy at large. Whether you produce a few devices a year or countless every single month, your recycling efforts will make a difference in the community.
