ABSTRACT :

Electronic waste, commonly known as e-waste, is comprised of discarded computers, television sets, microwave ovens and       other such appliances that are past their useful lives. As managing e waste becomes a priority, countries are being forced to develop new models for the collection and environmentally sound disposal of this waste. The hazardous content of these materials pose a threat to human health and environment. Discarded computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, fax machines, electric lamps, cell phones, audio equipment and batteries if improperly disposed can leach lead and other substances into soil and ground water. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled in an environmentally sound manner so that they are less harmful to the ecosystem. This paper highlights the hazards of e-wastes, the need for its appropriate management and options that can be implemented.
