Business eWaste: Why Should You Care? [Infographic]
Electronic waste, commonly referred to as e-waste, is any electronic device that has reached the end of it's useful life. Whether it is at the "end-of-life" and is completely non-functional, or just "end-of-use" and has potential to be reused, it's important to properly handle IT equipment to ensure any data contained is secured and the harmful chemicals inside are responsibly managed.
