Of the approximately 16 billion cell #phones worldwide, some 5.3 billion are estimated to become waste this year. Experts point this out on the occasion of E-Waste Day on October 14. Only a small part of this is disposed of properly, the e-waste recycling association WEEE Forum in Brussels and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) in Geneva announced on Thursday. According to the report, if the discarded devices, which are about 9 millimeters thick, were all placed on top of each other, the tower would be about 50,000 kilometers high. Source: it-business.de
