Abstract

As humans have evolved, so has our technology. As electronics flourished, they became more common placed in daily life, controlling much of the ebb and flow of life. Yet, same as their creators, all the electronics have a life span, and an end. The current path old electronics take is one of environmental destruction, material squandering, and human self-affliction. Team E-Cactus has research not only the current state of electronic waste, but also how many countries, companies and even local organizations try to recover any electronics so they can to see that they are remade for a better use. In par with what has already been laid down in terms of standards and policies for countries and companies alike, Team E-Cactus has taken towards making it possible to adapt and implement these fore standing practices to be used by any and all where the need be applied. This is with the hope that discarded electronics are not so, but rather recycled, reclaimed or reused, for a better healthier, and more plentiful future.
