BoxQ Newsletter – June 2014
An interesting shift regarding worldwide e-waste generation occurred this year. For the first time ever, developing nations are disposing of more electronics/e-waste than the U.S. This is based on sheer volume of electronic equipment that is being thrown away. The U.S. still has the distinction of generating the most e-waste per capita (6 times higher than the second place nation, China), but emerging countries are likely to surpass the U.S. in this category in the coming decades.
This added volume of electronic components being introduced into the already burgeoning e-waste stream will provide challenges worldwide for proper handling and disposal.
