Review Of E - waste Solutions

First of all, E-waste is a term that is now being use for electronics that are nearing the end of their useful life. We shop we use, we're done, then what? This review is about what your options are of what to do with your electronics when you're done using them.

Remember cassettes? 8 tracks? Vinyl records? How many cell phones do you have laying around the house that you’re not using any more? How many old TV’s and computers do you have stored in the garage, you don’t know what to do with?

While we’re all busy trying to be green, in the meantime, we’re accumulating so much e-waste, it’s almost crazy to think how we’re going to get rid of the cell phones, computers, televisions, stereos, copiers, fax machines, etc, etc. Times are changing so rapidly and electronics are becoming so outdated at such a rapid pace I can see piles and piles of electronics that will be discarded and it will probably look like a scene from a Hollywood doomsday movie from the future of the planet. I’m sure Bruce Willis will be the star!

Nevertheless, I had no idea what to do with my old electronic equipment. So, I figured other people didn’t know what to do with theirs, either. Consequently, I will try to help you figure out how to dispose of all of your e-waste in a green, efficient fashion.

1. CalRecycle says to use the mantra: “Reduce, Reuse and Recyle”. Reduce what you buy, reuse what you can, and recycle everything you can. There website will also let you search by what it is you’d like to get rid of and in what town.

2. Ebay is now capitalizing on how quickly electronics become obsolete and launched their "Instant Sale" in 2010. You find your item, Ebay pays for shipping, collect your cash. Easy as pie!

3. The EPA can help get rid of your old electronics, too. They will point you to a list of local programs. Like EcoSquid, Earth 911, My Green Electronics, Tech Soup and a few others.

Bottom line is, don’t just pile up the outdated electronics, be a responsible E-steward and tell a friend to do the same!
