UK households and businesses produce 1.45 million tonnes of electrical waste each year, research shows.

That issue is now being discussed by the government. A spokesperson for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) said: “We are committed to moving to a more circular economy."

That's the price for neverending growth (which does not exist so the system will collapse sooner or later). People do not value products anymore so it turns into a throwaway economy.
