E-waste is the fastest growing waste stream.  According to the “Global E-waste Monitoring Report 2020” 53.6 metric tons of electronic waste (e-waste) was generated while only 17% was collected and recycled.  In North America alone 7.7 million metrics tons of electronic waste was generated and only 15% was collected and recycled.

E-waste is not only an environmental issue, but it also poses a data security risk for companies and individuals.  Data security continues to be a top risk for companies today. According to InfoSecurity Magazine data leaks and breaches soared to 93% in 2020.  Secure handling of the data on your end-of-life electronics is just as critical as your online data.  And It requires the same level of discipline and safeguarding.

Education and awareness are critical to addressing this growing e-waste challenge. 4THBIN’s Co-founder John Kirsch recently sat down with Recycle Track Systems (RTS) to talk about how businesses can ensure their e-waste is recycled securely and sustainably.

Happy Halloween!

To some, the spookiest part of Halloween may be the ghosts or vampires, but to us, it’s the plastic waste that is left behind. Nearly 2,000 tonnes of plastic waste are generated yearly from Halloween scraps, the equivalent of 83 million water bottles. Similar to electronic waste, the scraps that are left behind from Halloween will end up in a landfill - posing major hazards to the environment and humanity.
