Statistics suggest that Australians are among the highest users of latest technologies in the world, purchasing millions of computers every year. For this reason, e-waste has become a growing problem in the country.
In Australia, among the most common electronic devices are computers. While some Australians have the desktop models, others own the portable ones. Though these devices play a vital role in day to day activities, what many do not know is that they are made of materials that pose a threat to human health and the environment.
On the bright side, computer recycling or e-waste recycling makes a great source for non-renewable resources, such as nickel, copper, zinc, and tin.
When computers are recycled, most of them are refurbished with new replacement parts and software. From there, they are repackaged and made available to communities that generate low income. Others are re-sold to manufacturers.
Just like computers, electronic waste, in general, undergo manual dismantling processes. The materials obtained in the process, such as cables, plastics, circuit boards, and glass, are then used as raw materials to produce new products.

Electronic Waste or E-waste Recycling
What happens to the old stuff?
March 10, 2019
It is widely known that about 90% of e-waste ends up in a landfill. That is ecologically dangerous, irresponsible and wasteful.
Eco IT Solutions, one of the major APAC “end of life/lease” (EOL) IT specialists, has established a joint venture (JV) in Australia to bring its best practice here — reuse, repurpose and recycle — to show that there is still value in superseded computing, networking, and communications hardware.
