"Anything that has a wire, a plug or a battery or runs on electricity that you probably aren't going to use ever again comprises of electronic waste"
We urge everyone to Reuse and reduce their electronics as much as possible. However, at the end of their life cycles, the list of E-waste includes your old PC, mobile phone, Ipods, Televisions and this list goes on..
E-waste includes the broad spectrum of electronic appliances, products, components, and accessories that - due to malfunction, exhaustion or obsolescence have been discarded.
Recycling raw materials from end-of-life electronics is the most effective solution to the growing e-waste problem. Most electronic devices contain a variety of materials, including metals that can be recovered for future uses. By dismantling and providing reuse possibilities, intact natural resources are conserved and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is avoided. Additionally, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the manufacturing of new products.
We need to accomplish what needs to be done to conserve the Earth for future generations by looking beyond short-term convenience. We need to be determined in making efforts to establish an environmentally sound nation, in which each one of us can realize that we are responsible for protecting the Earth, as we carefully assess our efforts to improve the environment individually.
We go to great lengths to stop E-waste from reaching a landfill, where it will not only pose a threat to nature, but also become a grave health hazard.
