Why does Electronic Recycling Really Matter?
According to the senior programme specialist at the CEDARE (Center for Environment & Development for the Arab Region and Europe) “This is very hazardous to the environment, and the plastic shell of most electronics are not biodegradable. Once it breaks apart, materials from inside the plastic will find its way to the soil and contaminate it”. Thus, recycling electronic waste is really important to the environment. On the other hand, e-waste could play a great part in supporting the economy of the country as well, precious metals like gold, copper, aluminium and silver could be sold to local industries for in-house manufacturing of goods and could turn into a profitable export business.
Nevertheless, establishing an e-waste management idea in the form of the industry could satisfy both the environment and the nation’s economy as well.
