One way for you to get rid of your old electronics is by bringing them to recycling facilities near you. A lot of facilities operate only for the sole purpose of recycling waste. Although it is quite pricey, it guarantees that the electronics you are going to throw away are put to good use afterwards. This is what your local recycling facilities do to your electronic garbage:
Sorting – they sort your e-waste and take out hazardous components e.g. batteries, before dismantling your electronics by part.
Shredding – the dismantled gadget goes through a shredder and comes out into smaller and finer particles, then shaken down to the conveyor belt for further refinement.
Separation – refined particles now go through a magnet to separate magnetic particles and metals from nonmetals.
Water separation – water separation technology then separates plastics particles from the glass.
Resell – recycling facilities sort out the separated components and can sell them as raw materials.
Your e-waste can go through this process and turn into reusable raw materials again. Although it is an expensive way to dispose of your waste, it will surely turn your waste into something of value.
