What is E-Waste?

Unwanted, non-working electronic devices are
termed as E-Waste.
With advancement in technology, a large number of electronic devices are
becoming obsolete almost on a regular basis. Bulky computers, TV sets,
VCRs, Fax machines, Printers, CD Players top the list. These devices contain
harmful materials such as beryllium, cadmium, mercury and lead which can pose a threat to the environment if not disposed properly.
Besides, the opportunity to recycle these devices would also be lost!

The Basel Convention defines E-Waste as:

"Waste electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part or
rejects from their manufacturing and repair process, which are
intended to be discarded."
