What is E-Waste?

Electronic Waste, is popularly now known as ‘e-waste’. It can be defined as and when an electronic device is dismissed or discarded when the life or the use of that device or the product comes to an end. This mainly happens due to the fast and rapid changes that occur in the technology. Changes in technology are mainly responsible for the E- waste generated today.

At present Mumbai is one of the leading city which alone generates tonnes of Electronic waste annually and in the absence of proper disposal. Recycling of these raw materials which have no life left or are about to die is the best possible way to end the ongoing problems of E-waste. But most of the electronics product or devices contain a lot of different varieties of materials such as metals which can be reused for future use. By breaking down these products and getting them to be re-used will indirectly save air and water pollution. Another benefit of recycling them will also reduce the greenhouse gas emission which is caused while producing the new products. Certain materials can be recycled and reused but there are few of the materials which cannot be recycle or be reused. In countries like the U.S., recycling aims to reduce the harm to human health and the surroundings that dispose and dismiss the Electronics. Recycling of the products ensures the best management process of the electronics being recycled or re used for worker health and safety. In Europe the metals which are recycled are returned to the responsible companies with a reduced cost. While in Japan they have pushed to make their products more sustainable. They impose hard-core responsibilities on the manufactures to recycle products with new designs for their infrastructure. This has resulted that manufacturers in japan have an option to sell the recycled metals.
