Did you know?
E-waste is the world's fastest-growing domestic waste due to high consumption rates, short lifecycles, and limited repair options. It is also a health and environmental hazard. In 2019, 53.6 million metric tonnes (Mt) of electronic waste was generated worldwide — a 21% increase in only five years — but only 17.4% of it was collected for refurbishments or recycling efforts while most were discarded and burned. In that year alone, Asia generated the most volume of e-waste (approx. 24.9 Mt) followed by the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Oceania.
