Personally I like my laptop to be mylaptop, my mobile phone to be my mobile phone and my desktop PC to be my desktop PC. I like to go running and I certainly would not take an iphone out to listen to music, let alone with an ipad stuck under my arm; that’s what my ipod nano and ipod shuffle are for! Keep things simple when it comes to gadgets that is my thinking. Perhaps that’s just becuase I’m an old fashioned kind of gadget lover…
So how does recycling your old mobile phone impact on the environment?
When you recycle something like a mobile phone it creates a circular supply chain. These types of supply chain benefit the environment in a number of ways. They reduce carbon emissions, as there is no longer a need to produce all of the components such as printed circuit boards. This has an effect further back on the supply chain, as less of the primary materials are sourced-so the carbon footprint reduces further.
Another benefit is waste management. At this point emissions are reduced as there is less metal and electronic waste (e-waste) which ends up in the landfill recycling process. Nearly all metal waste can be and is melted down to its purest form and re-used: It is important that we do this to keep scarce natural resources in circulation. Although the waste from your recycled mobile phone still has to be recycled, this it carried out by specialist, private companies and does not impact on government waste management funds.
There is an estimated 20-50 million tonnes of e-waste produced each year which can house harmful components such as lead and cadmium. This waste makes up 5% of all solid waste and with an average lifespan of only 2 years for a mobile phone (in developed countries), it can only increase.
Still think its just too much hassle to recycle your phone?
Perhaps you should think about not only the long term environmental damage e-waste will do to our planet, but the long term damage it will do to your finances. When you choose to throw away your phone with general household waste it is taken away by your local Council. This service is paid for with your taxes and if we continue to increase
