E-Waste in the U.S.
Americans spent $71 billion on telephone and communication equipment in 2019, nearly five times what they spent in 2010 even when adjusted for inflation.
Americans now own approximately 24 electronic products per household.
Only 19 states have laws banning electronics from the regular trash. In states without such rules, like Nevada, electronics often end up in garbage and recycling bins.
Recycling 1 million laptop computers can save enough energy to run 3,500 U.S. homes for a year.
In the United States and Canada, every person produces roughly 20kg of e-waste annually.
