This is an environmental recycling program of Electronic Waste known as eWaste, the Kyocera Machine Take back program is a symbol of Kyocera's commitment to the environment.
What is e-Recycling?
The recycling process involves the combination of manual dismantling and the application of technology and mechanical processing. Various plastics, ferrous and non-ferrous metals and glass will be separated and processed individually within the recycling facility.
Tonnes of computers, monitors, televisions and other electronic products of eWaste contain hazardous chemicals. Globally, governments are trying to deal with this mounting problem because electronic products can leach toxins and hazardous substances such as lead, mercury and cadmium into surrounding ecosystems. They also contain valuable materials - steel, aluminium, microchips, gold and silver that can be recovered.
Australia is currently one of the top ten countries using ICT. It is estimated 9.2 million computers are in use around Australia with a further 2.1 million due to enter the market this year.
eWaste in Australia is growing at over 3 times the rate of general municipal waste, causing huge environmental concern.
