How are materials used for renewable energy disposed once they are done with? Solar panels, wind turbines, water turbines, etc.
I would like to know this in the context of calculating the benefits of renewable energy - how the disposal of the materials used impacts the entire life cycle of renewable energy generation.

This question is better split into different types of renewable energy.

For solar energy, see “How Are Materials Used for Solar Energy Disposed?” (OneSharedEarth, 2019)

For wind energy, see “How Are Materials Used for Wind Energy Disposed?” (OneSharedEarth, 2019)

Links for other renewable energy will be added as info is available.
