Understanding E-Waste Management
E-waste, short for electronic waste, is the term used to describe old or discarded electronic devices at the end of their functional lives. Items such as smartphones, laptops, desktop computers, air conditioners, TVs, refrigerators, and washing machines fall into this category. Many of these gadgets can be given a second life through reuse, refurbishment, or recycling.
However, the ever-increasing production of e-waste has become a global concern. Even though e-waste is a source of valuable materials like aluminium, copper, gold, and silver, it also harbours harmful elements such as cadmium, lead, and mercury. Without adequate knowledge and disposal practices, e-waste can end up in landfills, potentially leaking toxic substances into our air, water, and soil. This can create significant health and environmental risks. It's crucial that we understand and manage e-waste effectively to minimize its damaging effects on our world.
