Only 17% of electronic waste is recycled. That’s because devices aren’t designed to be recycled. They’re full of tiny, toxic materials that are hard and expensive to break down. But if extracted safely, those materials could mean big money for e-recyclers like Sims Lifecycle Services. We visit Sims’ Tennessee recycling facility to find out why e-waste is getting harder to deal with.

  1. Nice video!! Very engaging from beginning to end. Nevertheless, businesses and investment are the easiest way to make money irrespective of which party makes it to the oval office.

  2. Right to repair would be one way you can motivate manufacturers to include ways to keep devices in circulation longer than 2 year warranty duration

  3. here a better thing to do than just design something to be recycled make the parts available so you can repair your electronics so even less needs to be chucked out in one go

  4. Just another reason why right to repair would change a lot by forcing manufacturers to make their devices easier to disassemble, reduce the planned obsolescence and make funktioning parts don't even end up in such facilities but with repair shops who can use it as parts for other devices.

  5. I always wondered how electronics were recycled. Now I know. It's so easy to buy new electronics and so many items are so quickly out of date, or useless, eg, my Sony Experia 1 phone lasted only 2 years then gave up the ghost.
