Is e-waste still a problem?



  1. 0 Votes

    At the very least it is becoming much less of a problem than it was. In 2004, the Electronic Waste Recycling Act was passed, which set up a program where consumers could recycle their e-waste instead of just throwing it into landfills. Later, regulations were passed that designated e-waste as harmful to the environment, and let the public know they should take it to a designated recycler instead of throwing it away. Since then, more changes to laws and regulations have been made, and the amount of e-waste in landfills has since been reduced at least a little bit.
