In 2018, China documented 1.5 million metric tons of electronic waste to be collected and recycled. China is the largest producer of e-waste worldwide, generating more than 10 million metric tons in 2019. Proper recycling of e-waste is important as it can recover valuable materials. When electronics are not properly disposed of, they can leak toxic substances and harm the environment.
