What Is E-Waste?

E-Waste or Electronic Waste refers to any electronic device that has been discarded because it is obsolete, broken, or no longer useful. E-Waste often contains traces of hazardous material that prevents them from being disposed of by normal means. Proper precautions must be taken in order to process these products. Disposal of hazardous materials derived from the E-Waste must be removed from electronic devices. Some parts of the E-Waste can be reused, while others are recycled.
