Electronic waste, or e-waste, is one of the biggest issues of our time.

It is incredibly toxic to the environment - land, sea and air - if burnt or disposed of in landfill, but it can mostly be recycled. Despite this only around 15% of e-waste is recycled each year, with the rest being dumped or burnt. It is expected e-waste will grow 8% year on year and so far most “recycling” has ended up with tonnes of it being dumped in Ghana, China and other Eastern Asia countries. At Strange Labs, we aim to help reduce this as much as we can. You can bring your old electronic equipment to us to send off for proper recycling. Both Strange Labs, and the company we use if we cannot refurbish in store, follow the method displayed to the right.
