Take the e-waste quiz

According to War on Waste, the average family generates 73kg of e-waste per year. For a family of five this can be 140kg. Over a decade that's 1.4 tonnes.

This family of five will generate 1.4 tonnes of ewaste over 10 years acccording to the War on Waste

As the father of the family remarked, it's quite a lot when you look at it all at once.

Obviously e-waste is big issue. for recycling options near you, see the very well-named website Recycling Near You.

Also see how much you know about e-waste, with ABC's e-waste quiz. The average person gets about 6/10.
