How many electronic devices have you owned in the past ten years? Probably quite a few. With tech companies releasing annual updates to their top-of-the-line gadgets, the urge to upgrade can be strong. The trouble is figuring out what to do with our old devices. 

In recent years, both the tech industry and consumers have pushed for greater recycling of electronics. But this is no mean feat. Modern devices are composed of many different materials, some of which are hazardous. Ensuring that they are handled properly requires great care.

International regulations, such as RoHS, seek to restrict the use of certain toxic materials in electronics. But it's difficult to maintain transparent supply chains without proper labeling. Enterprise labeling solutions help the industry centralize the labeling process and ensure high levels of accuracy.

It's easier to recycle an electronic device if it has a clear label describing its contents. Thanks for watching, and check back later for more on how Enterprise Labeling helps electronics manufacturers comply with changing regulations.
