Safely disposing of E-waste from broken computers and other outmoded electronic gadgets is becoming a bigger problem as the world becomes ever more wired. The chemicals and rare metals inside our laptops and phones are particularly harmful to the environment, and simply throwing them away is a waste of precious resources that then need to be replaced through fresh mining. 'Recycla' is the first and only electronic waste recycling social enterprise in Latin America. The company aims to tackle the problem of the eight million mobile phones and one million computers that are discarded in Chile annually. They are dismantled and separated into recyclable materials and toxic waste that can be disposed of safely.
