What is E-Waste?
E-waste, short for electronic waste, can be any outdated or obsolete appliance or electronic device found in both personal and professional spaces. Printers, computers and cell phones are all common examples of e-waste.
Our customers are often surprised to find out the Colorado Springs Transfer Sites and Landfills are not able to accept their outdated electronics, and they’re not sure how they should get rid of them properly.
A Rapidly Growing Waste Stream!
As we replace old electronic products with newer models, the stockpile of used and obsolete products grows. According to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), Americans now own approximately 24 electronic products per household. The “Solving The E-Waste Problem” (StEP) Initiative estimates that in 2012 the United States generated over 65 pounds of e-waste per resident.
