This may surprise you, but the United States produces the most electronic waste in the world. Each year, around 9.4 million tons of electronic waste is produced, but only 12% of it goes to recycling. The numbers are even higher when you take into account the rest of the world. Collectively, we produce around 20 to 50 million tons of electronic waste.
What can we do to help with proper waste disposal of electronic devices? Send them to a certified electronics recycling company like ours in Hughesville PA! A company that is R2:2013 certified, like KVS Computers, ensures that the recycling of electronics is done in a responsible manner that is safe for the environment, even in the situation of COVID-19. Without being officially certified, electronics recycling may harm, not help the environment. The R2:2013 certification requires recyclers to uphold the highest standards.
