Computer Aid International

The IT industry is one of the world’s fastest growing industries. Greater access to computers is helping to create an information society where individuals and companies are becoming increasingly connected at a global scale. But the growth of the IT industry has led to a substantial increase in the generation of e-waste.

E-waste can be seen as one of the greatest challenges facing the IT industry due to its impacts on the environment and human health as well as the sheer scale of the problem, which is exacerbated by the difficulty of upgrading equipment. The need to reduce, reuse and recycle is becoming an ever more apparent issue.
