Electronic Recycling facts you should know!

•One metric ton of circuit boards can contain 40 to 800 times the concentrations of gold ore mined in the US and 30-40 times the concentration of copper ore mined in the US.
•Recycling one million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 US homes in a year.
•For every million cell phones we recycle, 35,274 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium can be recovered.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an estimated
30 to 40 million PCs will be ready for "end-of-life management" in each of
the next few years

About 25 million TVs are taken out of service yearly.

The EPA estimates that in 2005, the U.S. discarded 1.5 to 1.9 million tons
(3 billion lbs.) of computers, TVs, VCRs, monitors, cell phones, and
other equipment.

According to the UN Environment Programme, the worldwide total for
e-waste could be 50 million tons per year.
