The students of professional stream are having more awareness of Risk of e-waste than the students of non-professional stream. ● There is no significant difference in the awareness on the subject of E-waste management in college students of professional and non-professional streams. All the students are unaware of proper e-waste management.
  12. 12. RTIE 2015 CONCLUSION On the behalf of the results of the study it is state that the awareness on the subject of the risk and management of e-waste are extremely low and urgent measures are required to consider this issue. Being a responsible citizen we should play a role in e-waste management as donating electronics items for reuse, which extends the lives of valuable products and keep them out of the waste management system for a long time. When buying electronic products, always try for those that are made with less toxic constituents, use recycled content, are energy efficient, and are designed for easy upgrading or disassembly.
