E-waste or electronic waste refers to industrial waste generated in the electronic industry along with discarded electronic products ranging from computers, equipment of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), home appliances and peripherals of these devices. The rapid boom in the IT industry combined with industrialisation & urbanisation has led to a surge in the usage of electronic gadgets. The latter get out-of-fashion and redundant at a fast pace, because of which they are discarded more frequently. This generates large amounts of toxic e-waste.
Extending the life of electronic products and re-using electrical components brings an even larger economic benefit, as working devices are certainly worth more than the materials they contain. A circular electronics system – one in which resources are not extracted, used and wasted, but re-used in countless ways – creates decent, sustainable jobs and retains more value in the industry.
By all coming together on the global stage, we can create a sustainable industry that generates less waste and in which our devices are re-used as well as recycled in novel ways. This also creates new forms of employment, economic activity, education, and trade.
There are four characteristics that can make a waste hazardous: ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, and toxicity
The consumers must also take responsibility for their own old electronic goods. They must ensure that their e-waste is deposited at authorised collection centres or recyclers certified by the Central Pollution Control Board and the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests.
Electronic devices are comprised of toxic substances and heavy metals. Materials such as chromium, cadmium, mercury, and lead can leach into the soil, contaminating the air and waterways. EPA estimates there are about 60 million tons of e-waste per year globally. Recycling this material will save landfill space.
Education, awareness, and safety gear must be provided for the workers, who handle the E-waste to provide a safe working environment. E-waste is one of the most harmful of all waste that we generate. It is the inevitable and unwelcome gift of modern technology. Let us pledge to dispose them in the most environment friendly way, to cause the least damage to Mother Earth
