E-Cycling statistics show that we have much more to do in order to reduce harmful e-waste. The following information is provided by the EPA as of 2010 and can be found on the website Electronics Take Back.

"The EPA has just released its “2009 Facts and Figures” on Municipal Solid Waste generated in the U.S. This new report shows that in 2009, as in previous years,  the vast majority (82.3%) of e-waste discarded in the U.S.  is still ending up in our landfills and incinerators, with only 17.7 percent going to recyclers. This is a slight increase from 2008, when 13.6 was diverted for recycling. But it’s far lower than the recycling rate reported for the whole municipal waste stream, which was 33.8%." source: Barbara Kyle, Electronics Takeback Coalition
