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.
