Recycling Electronic Waste Saves Energy

Apart from the fact that recycling electronic waste lessens its negative environmental impact, it also saves a lot of energy. According to the EPA, recycling 500,000 laptops will generate the equivalent of energy needed to power almost 2000 standard US homes.

If people recycle all retired mobile phones, the energy generated can power more than 20,000 homes. In addition to generating such large amounts of energy, recycling provides aluminium which saves part of the energy needed to mine new aluminium.
