Where you iPhone goes to Die (and be Reborn)

At a dedicated factory with 24-hour security in an undisclosed location in Hong Kong, iPhones are being carefully and meticulously destroyed.

The plant is one of a handful around the world, chosen by Apple Inc. to grind up and recycle its iconic phones. And just as the companies that manufacture the handsets are subject to strict standards and secrecy, the same applies in reverse for their disassembly, right down to weighing the shreds, to make sure nothing is lost.

In addition, Apple said it collected more than 40,000 tons of e-waste in 2014 from recycled devices, including enough steel to build 100 miles of railway track.

Nowadays, E-waste has become one of the rapidly growing problems in the world since we all obviously have excessive devices.Therefore, let’s all put some effort on it and start influencing and improving Singaporean’s attitude and behaviour towards e-waste.
