What are the types of e-waste?

Small appliances

(toaster, vacuum cleaner, etc.)

Lighting equipment

(saving bulbs, fluorescent, etc.)

Why should I recycle e-waste?

While electronic devices serve as a very important resource in terms of the valuable raw materials they contain, on the other hand, they create a dangerous environment due to the harmful substances they contain. While 1% of the waste in the world is electronic waste, 70% of the hazardous substance pollution in the soil is caused by e-waste. Therefore, it is very important to manage and recycle electronic waste correctly.

What do I gain by recycling my e-waste?

Recycling electronic waste offers a number of important environmental and economic benefits. In terms of environmental protection, recycling helps preserve natural resources. Because when precious metals and other materials are reused, the need for raw materials in the production of new products decreases. This process also protects soil and water resources by preventing the leakage of toxic substances into the environment and contributes to reducing carbon dioxide emissions by reducing the amount of energy required for the production of new products. Thus, electronic waste recycling plays a critical role in both protecting the environment and creating economic value.

What is the e-waste situation in Türkiye and the world?

In 2016, a total of 44.7 million tons of e-waste was generated in the world, and only 8.9 million tons (20%) was collected and recycled. (Global E-Waste Monitor, 2017) It is estimated that the amount of e-waste in Türkiye will reach 672 thousand tons in 2024.
The largest category of e-waste globally is, unsurprisingly, the small household appliances category. It is estimated that 16.8 million tons of small household appliances turned into e-waste in 2016. This category is followed by large household goods with 9.1 million tons and categories with higher product unit weight such as refrigerators, coolers and air conditioning devices with 7.6 million tons.
