Vintage Tech Recyclers FAQ Series | "How Much E-Waste is in the Waste Stream?"

In 2005, discarded tv’s’ pc’s’ peripherals (including printers, scanners, faxes), mice, keyboards and cell phones totaled about 2 million tons. Of that, about 80-85% (1.5 to 1.9 million tons) was discarded, primarily in landfills.
