October 14 is International E-Waste Day

Since 2018, the WEEE Forum has recognized October 14 as International E-Waste Day, in order to raise awareness of the growing problem surrounding the disposal of electronics across the globe. According to the Global E-waste Monitor, a record-setting 53.6 million metric tons of e-waste was generated in 2019, and only 17.4% of that was recycled. This means that recoverable materials such as the precious metals inside electronic devices were simply dumped rather than being recovered. Not to mention, the toxic materials that also live inside electronic devices such as lead are being unsafely thrown away, which can cause them to leach into nearby groundwater.
