Turning Toxic Waste Into Technology Assets
An estimated 30 to 50 million tons of electronics are trashed every year globally. In America, this produces 70% of all toxic waste, caused by lead, cadmium, beryllium, and other dangerous metals. Electronics that become toxic waste could be used by schools, relief organizations, and non-profits in need all over the world. InterConnection, a recent partner with the Connected Community Engagement Program, works to fix both problems with safe electronics recycling and refurbishment.
