Who is actually are responsible for electronic waste that have been filling up the landfill? Of course the answer is the owners of the electronics. Who are the owners? If you are reading this, you are one of them because this is can only be read if you own electronic devices. Why is it your fault? Firstly, it is because electronic devices are made of non-biodegradable materials.

Few people see value in their used electronics because once it lost its function, people tend to store it in a place that is out of their sight or some people would throw it away together with the general waste, which is improper. Electronics devices are full of valuable materials that can be disassembled, recycled and reused in new product. If people would start taking interest in how to manage their electronic waste and start to see its value before throwing it away, we could live in zero waste world. But little did the people know, throwing away their electronic waste is like throwing away steel, copper, gold and iron away.

Feel guilty now? You should!
