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 obsolete.
  3. 3. Solid wastes and hazardous wastes • Solid wastes include pollution and redundant waste of resources, and hazardous wastes represents to pollution, natural capital degradation, health problems and premature deaths.
  4. 4. 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.

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.

However, there is no doubt that rudimentary e waste recycling might result more environment hazards than land filling
