WHAT IS E-WASTE?
Any equipment that runs on electricity or battery that is no more in a working condition is called e-waste. It includes computer & peripherals, CFLs appliances like shavers, blenders, electronic iron etc.
WHY IS IT VALUABLE AND HAZARDOUS?
The rapid growth in the electronics sector with the boom in consumer electronic products and the advent of Robotics, Automation and Internet of things, we humans have more products than we need. The latest electronic gadget we bought just a couple of years ago is now no longer used or out of date.
This has resulted in the exponential growth of Electronic Waste across the world. India alone generated 18.5 lakh tons of waste in a year which is set to rise to 50 lakh tons by 2020. These electronic products contain thousands of chemicals, some of which are precious metals like Gold, Copper but most of which are highly toxic like Lead, Mercury and Cadmium etc. These end up polluting our land, water and air if not handled in a responsible manner. The informal sector handles over 95% of all the E-Waste in India currently using crude technology of metal extraction, employing children and women to work under hazardous conditions.
WHAT TO DO WITH E - WASTE?
As per e-waste policy as well the legislation passed by the Ministry of Environment Forests and Climate Change (MoEF & CC) Government of India, called EPR – Extended Producer Responsibility (Management) Rules, 2016, which comes into effect from 1st Oct 2016, it is the responsibility of every Producers & consumers to ensure that their electrical and electronic equipment after their end-of-life is sent to authorized recyclers.
