What is electronic waste?
Electronic waste or e-waste as we often refer to it is old computers, file servers, printers, computer monitors, old telecommunications equipment including mobile phones, copiers, home entertainment systems and TV sets that are so old they have no further use in the community without major repairs or extensive upgrades. A vast amount of e-waste is generated in New Zealand each year and it has become a major problem in our society because it takes up large areas of landfill and most is quite hazardous.
Why is it hazardous?
Most electronic equipment contains printed circuit boards which are hazardous because of their high concentration of lead in solder, and brominated flame retardants. Computer monitors contain approximately 10-20% lead in the glass tubes. Monitor casings also contain brominated flame retardants and other chemicals, as do printers and copiers. Some equipment also contains high levels of other hazardous materials such as cadmium and beryllium.
Where does it all go?
In the past large volumes of e-waste have been exported from developed countries, including New Zealand, to developing countries such as China, India, Thailand etc. This has caused all sorts of environmental problems in those countries. Subsequently, countries such as China and Thailand have stopped accepting e-waste for recycling. Downstream processing of electronic components now must be undertaken in New Zealand or exported under very strict conditions to BASEL Convention member countries.
