Available data destruction.
Recycling circuit boards and other electronic components preserves valuable resources and reduces environmental impact. It is estimated that roughly a metric ton of circuit boards contain 40 - 800 times the gold and 30-40 times the copper of one metric ton of ore mined in the U.S.
As with desktops, few laptop computers are actively recycled. It is estimated that recycling one million laptops could save enough energy to supply electricity to 3,657 U.S. homes for a year. Available data destruction.
In 2010 alone, more than 150 million devices were discarded by their users. Around 135 million devices were trashed and 17 million were recycled. Thus leaving the recycled average at about 11%.
