A record 53.6 million metric tonnes (Mt) of electronic waste was generated worldwide in 2019, up 21 per cent in just five years. Only 17.4% of global #ewaste was collected and properly recycled.

In 2019 only 17.4% of global e-waste was collected and properly recycled, which means that 44.3 million metric tonnes of -e-waste , valued at US $57 billion, was either placed in landfill, burned or illegally traded and treated in a sub-standard way. More, this is despite 71% of the world’s population being covered by e-waste legislation. This results in the huge loss of valuable and critical raw materials form the supply chain and cause serious health, environmental and societal issue  through illegal shipments of waste to developing countries.
