Electronic waste has become a stark reality of the progress human beings are making almost everyday. Its a chain reaction new technology comes up and the products from the old technology are shunned and gone down the drain. Well they don’t really go well down the drain since the components in the E-waste products are non degradable and have the ability to harm the environment in a big way. Waste Removal in terms of Electronic waste is still a challenge faced by the world community. Cities like London have this problem aggravated since people have keen eye on the changing technology and like to replace their old products with the new ones rather faster than the rest of the world. Thus Rubbish clearance especially in London in terms of the E-waste collected becomes all the more important and tough.
E-waste is laden with hazardous components that have the ability to damage the environment in a big way. If these products are burned even in the most controlled conditions still the fumes are more than enough to damage the respiratory system of living beings and human beings in particular. If the components of E-waste like mercury, lead and arsenic come in contact with water the damage to human health is more profound and long term. The toxic level in plants, animals and human beings keeps increasing which leads to bioaccumulation and biomagnification of these toxic elements inside the human food chain.
The need of the hour is to minimize, reduce, reuse and recycle the E-waste that is being generated almost everyday all across the world. Various legislations, rules and regulations have been enforced in an effort to control and minimize the effect of the E-waste on the human population. However all the rules, laws and regulations are going to be ineffective if we don’t understand our individual responsibilities in rubbish removal for E-waste.
Almost all the major companies involved in manufacturing electronics are required to take their waste products back and dispose it off amicably. The reason for taking back these waste products is that these organizations can recycle and reuse the components in a better way than any other company. Apart from that these organizations are expected to dispose off the components that cannot be reused in a way so that they don’t cause much harm to the environment and human beings. Collection centers to collect these waste products have been established and identified at almost all locations in the world in an effort to collect maximum waste that is generated out of the Electronic and electrical industry.
Wherever these organizations don’t have a reach organizations like clearitwaste make sure to collect and dispose off the rubbish in a way that it does minimum harm to the environment and human population in general. Although in the past this electronic waste used to be shipped into developing countries where heaps of it would lie unattended and untreated thus spreading all types of disorders and ailments in the human population in that area. However Rubbish clearance has almost become a world phenomenon due to the ever increasing awareness about the harm created by this kind of waste that lies unattended.
