If you're not satisfied with the above profit, there is other way to improve the e waste recycling profit. Metals and resin fiber are the final products that we get last. Instead of being sold directly, they can also be made into other products and sell. For example, resin fiber can be made into building bricks/ Resin tiles, ground painting, wood-plastic products, etc. The price is a little higher than sold directly. As for metals, they can be extracted gold or other precious metals, and then sell. In this way, you can get higher profit.
