From the very starting, we have been taught about the 3R’s Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. This waste hierarchy is the key to creating a sustainable life for us and our mother earth. It is a step by step guide that teaches us how to reduce the amount of waste generated in order of priority of actions.
Good news is we have started implementing these principles in our daily life in terms of domestic waste, garden waste and more. But in terms of e-waste, we are still lagging. If you are wondering how to incorporate these principles in managing e-waste, have a look at the FAQs discussed here.
What Is The World Doing To Tackle E-waste?
Constant efforts are being made around the world for finding the effective recycling
solutions. More and more nations are recognising the e-waste problem and executing initiatives in the direction. For example, by January 2017, a good number of countries had issued legislation to address e-waste problem which encompassed nearly 4.8 billion people – 66% of the global population in 67 countries. This was compared to 2014 statistics when only 44% of the world’s population was covered. This also included the development of e-waste recycling streams.
Furthermore, efforts are also being made in the direction for incorporating the ways to reuse the old electronic equipment. Businesses and individuals are finding out ways to reuse their electronic products in different ways.
What Are The Most Effective Ways To Contribute Towards Effective Recycling Techniques?
Given below are the three most effective ways to contribute towards effective recycling techniques and improving the health of our planet.
- Introduction of Recycling and Garbage Receptacles – Recycling bins can be installed in residential areas, parks, commercial area campus and other public hotspots. This can be a great way to provide people with a reliable options to dispose off their e-waste for safe recycling. Places like Sweden have installed musical recycling bins that make recycling a pleasant experience. Other places like Chicago, Portland, San Diego have also installed trash cans specially designed to trash e-waste for recycling.
- Increasing awareness among the society for moving towards recycling – People have understood the importance of reduce and reuse. But knowledge about recycling is still confined to fewer places. Like people living in smaller cities and towns are still unaware of the fact that one mobile phone contains enough toxic materials that can cause serious health issues. Also, the recycling of laptops and televisions is more valuable than the mining of precious metals itself. If people get educated with the core facts of recycling, the implementation rate will increase drastically.
- The Increase of the zero waste initiatives: This effort includes the nitty gritty of recycling and along with that it also emphasises minimizing the e-waste, reduces consumption and use products that can be reused, refurbished and recycled. Many cities around the world are implementing zero waste initiatives that not just promote e-waste management in the right direction but also create awareness among people.
