The smartphone increases electronic waste in Spain

Mobile devices are part of our life. But our waste , or what is the same , the new trash S.XXI : technological waste. According to the latest data provided by the Ministry of Environment , were put on the market 702,000 tons of electronic products (PC 's, mobile phones and tablets among others) and only were recycled 124,900 , data showing the dispersion of hazardous waste throughout the Spanish territory . In fact, in Spain there is a law which came into force (Royal Decree 208/2005 ) that requires manufacturers , dealers and distributors to take over the collection, treatment and recovery of electronic products they sell. In addition , the report of the United Nations University (UNU ) , only in Spain more than 800 tons of electronic waste were generated during the last year . A rate that could increase 33% by 2017 . One of the reasons for the rise of mobile garbage is the short lifespan of our phones. The reason? The short battery life , says Jaume Montane, cofounder of Group and expert Monsan mobile phone . That is the main reason why so little last move and opted for mobile . And if we add to this fact that in Spain there are more terminals inhabitants since 2006 , this type of waste is a major problem. According to June 2013 the Ministry of Science and Innovation, the number of mobile phone lines was 51,927,748 , or what is the same, 112.4 lines per 100 inhabitants. In the absence of culture of recycling old and unused phones are becoming more entities come together to offer recycling services and awareness to users. For example , the non-profit organization recommends the following ECOTIC recycling methods : Manually remove and separate the components of the apparatus, mechanical recycling ( crushing and extraction apparatus ) , incineration and refining ( to recover metals ) and chemical recycling ( of precious metals like silver or printed circuit boards ) .
