E-Waste Revolution Event


E-waste is electronics that are no longer needed, broken, or reaching the end of their use. The problem of how to get rid of old and undesirable devices is not a recent one; it has existed at least since the 1970s. Every year, we produce over 40 million tons of electronic garbage globally and only 12.5% is recycled. When E-waste is taken to landfills, it gets burned to release toxins in the air contaminating the fresh air that we breathe as well as the environment’s land and oceans.


Anya created the E-Waste Revolution to solve this problem. Inspired by her love for the ocean and wildlife, she wants to teach her community to keep our planet and oceans clean by collecting, properly recycling, and disposing of e-waste. Working with Gumbo Limbo Coastal Stewards, Anya started annual/ bi-annual collection drives to collect and recycle old and broken electronic equipment, especially during back-to-school and the holiday season. On October 15, 2022, at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, Anya organized an Electronic Waste Collection & Recycling event where she educated the community about the harmful effects E-Waste has on our environment and the best methods to reduce and recycle electronics.


Help Anya and the community by being a part of the E-Waste Revolution just by learning to recycle e-waste at home. Simply make an e-waste bin to put all of your electronics such as headphones, chargers, gaming consoles, and phones until the next collection event, or drop items off to recycle yourself. This project will ensure that our community's water and soil are cleaner and that electronic garbage has a safer and more valuable disposal. Join the E-Waste Revolution now!


Anya wrote a proclamation for the City of Boca Raton to problem Oct 14th Boca Raton E-Waste Day! Mayor Scott Singer said yes! October 14th is officially E-Waste Day in Boca! This raised great awareness of E-Waste in the community, the city shared our event on social media, and so many people came to drop e-waste off because of it.
