As we continue to develop technologically in this modern age, there is an increasing amount of tech-based waste. As we rapidly change the technology we use, with the latest mobile phone models coming out multiple times each year, the surplus devices stack up. The average user life of a new mobile phone is only 24 months. But did you know that your old mobile devices can be recycled, rather than chucked away in the normal waste, or left gathering dust in a drawer?
Why it is a good idea to recycle your old mobile phone
The US Environmental Protection Agency claims that 141 million mobile phones were discarded in 2009, with only 12 million of these offered up for recycling. This could be taking its toll on the environment, with an estimated 70% of heavy metal landfill waste coming from discarded electronics. Not only is this a waste, by this electronic scrap also accounts for 70% of the toxic waste found in American landfill sites. Recycling your phones cuts down on this unwanted toxic waste.
