In 2008, we generated 3.16 million tons of electronic waste in the U.S. alone. It is estimated that between twenty to fifty metric tons of e-waste is disposed of worldwide on an annual basis. As technology rapidly changes, there will be more and more technology e-waste. This paper presents what to do to help solve the e-waste problems; a survey of e-waste disposal; and methods of fully cleaning hard drives to avoid potential identify theft.
