There’s a giant e-waste problem [Tech Effect Ep. 7]

The tech industry has a dirty secret

This week on The Tech Effect, the team looks at the world’s e-waste problem. People don’t seem to take it seriously, and recycling your old tech, well… it’s never easy.

Hopefully, this video has a few useful tips for you since there’s a lot to unpack, from how we use our devices and the benefits of buying refurbished devices to making sure that you dispose of your old batteries at a registered drop-off point.

If you have any old devices you don’t use, try donating them to a local charity before throwing them away.

Let us know how you repurpose old tech instead of throwing it away in the comment section below.
