What is E waste?
• As per the definition provided by legislation-
• E waste is generally discarded and old electrical device which can no
longer be used.
• These basically include all the home appliances and electronic items like
television, toaster, computers, printers, scanners, telephones, laptops, c
ell phones, monitors, fax, and all other items which become old and
Solid wastes and
• Solid wastes include pollution and redundant waste of
resources, and hazardous wastes represents to
pollution, natural capital degradation, health problems and
E waste Disposal Methods
• Today, many countries are there which export their items all
the developing countries for the recycling process.
However, people usually store the old electric items at their
home or dump them in to landfills which is not a good
procedure for recycling. Moreover, incineration is another
way through which one can recycle the electronic items and
recover the valuable materials.
It is recommended to look for leading recycling companies which
offer the best solutions for secure recycling of electronic waste
and get aware with the benefit of E waste Recycling.
Hazardous Effects On
• Burning of e waste= pollution
• E waste in green environment= destroyed land or soil
• E waste near water= ground water contamination
Why E Waste in Landfill
is not encouraged?
In a landfill process, the old and broken electric equipment are
buried under the deep levels of grounds. This is not good and should
not be followed as this poses a threat on soil by acidifying it which
further enters into water and food chain. The e waste contain toxic
components like lead, mercury, cadmium, beryllium and other
harmful chemicals which are very harmful for the human beings and
earth. However, there is no doubt that rudimentary e waste recycling
might result more environment hazards than land filling
Sources of WEEE
1. Household appliances
2. Electrical and electronic items
3. Toy and sports items
4. Medical devices
5. IT and telecom devices
Why do we need national legislation?
1. Current e waste regulations create jagged
2. Some states/ communities have already enacted
3. It is difficult for producers to comply state-to-state
4. Only large quality generators are regulated
How can we produce less
• There are four important ways that can help
making a planet healthier for everyone living on
this earth. Some of the ways are-
