11 ways to responsibly get rid of e-waste at your home or office 

In our tech-driven world, electronic devices have become indispensable. But with constant upgrades, what happens to the old gadgets? They tend to pile up and eat up storage space. But you can’t just throw them in the trash. E-waste poses a significant environmental threat if not disposed of responsibly.  

E-waste can contain hazardous materials. Such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retardants. These can harm the environment and human health.  

Here are some tips to responsibly get rid of e-waste at your home or office:  

  • Understand what makes up e-waste 
  • Reduce your e-waste 
  • Explore retailer recycling programs 
  • Use e-waste recycling centres  
  • Consider donating or selling functioning devices  
  • Dispose of batteries separately 
  • Try manufacturer take-back programs 
  • Opt for certified e-waste recyclers 
  • Educate your office or household 
  • Repurpose or upcycle 
  • Encourage manufacturer responsibility
