Clancy announced today a new e-waste recycling service is available for businesses in the NY/NJ/CT marketplace. This is an environmentally responsible solution to e-waste not widely available today. Clancy is developing the PureLand consortium to enable nationwide growth. And one of Clancy’s business partners, Geodis, is behind the scenes with an e-waste recycling operation that is revolutionary.
All businesses and consumers are all dealing with a problem. The electronics that we discard contain toxins such as mercury, lead, cadmium and brominated flame retardants. They are just some of the things found in electronics that can cause nervous system damage, respiratory problems and other serious health problems.
It is estimated there are 20-50 million metric tons of e-waste disposed of ever year worldwide. Last year, 80 to 85% of e-waste was discarded in landfills or incinerators. Today, only 12.5% of electronics waste is recycled. When e-waste is collected today, it can be packed in containers and sent overseas where reckless and irresponsible methods are used to extract value from the raw materials. Those processes pollute the air and water. The pollution eventually spreads across the globe.
