The Growing Problem of E-Waste

As consumers continue to “digitize” their lives, they are purchasing and discarding larger volumes of electronics. This results in a growing waste stream of broken, obsolete and unwanted electronic equipment, more commonly referred to as WEEE or e-waste. Discarded e-waste can be challenging to recycle because electronic products are complex devices manufactured from varying proportions of glass, metals and plastics.

SLS has been at the forefront of transforming the electronics recycling industry into a growing success story. We have led the industry in building a recycling infrastructure to support a sustainable ecosystem of product use, planned end-of-life disposal, and a systematic recycling process that extracts maximum value from discarded equipment, while creating green jobs.
