What is E-waste ?
“E-waste” / Electronic Waste is a broken, non-working or old/obsolete electronic appliance such as a TV, PC, air conditioner, washing machine and refrigerator.
E-waste is becoming a global issue because of tremendous growth of demand on electronic equipment and its disposal after use. Disposed E-waste sometimes causes health and environmental hazards if it is not handled properly.
However, many of these e-appliances can be reused, refurbished, or recycled.
E-waste is filled with a lots of toxic materials that affect human and animals body and the environment.When this e-waste is not properly handled and simply thrown out with the garbage, ultimately ending up in landfill, it means both human health and the environment are at risk.
