A model you can use to support many groups and begin a successful business.

44.7 million metric tonnes (Mt) of e-waste generated in 2016 – up 3.3 Mt or 8% from 2014 equal in weight to almost nine Great Pyramids of Giza, 4,500 Eiffel Towers, or 1.23 million fully loaded 18-wheel 40-ton trucks.

Only 20% of 2016’s e-waste is documented to have been collected and recycled despite rich deposits of gold, silver, copper, platinum, palladium and other high value recoverable materials. The conservatively estimated value of recoverable materials in last year’s e-waste was US $55 billion. $44 BILLION WAS THROWN AWAY IN A SINGLE YEAR.

It is time to get serious about e-waste salvage, recycling and reuse. Good for the planet and some real money to be made.
