    What is e-waste

    E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic
    products nearing the end of their "useful life." Computers,
    televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are
    common electronic products. Many of these products can be
    reused, refurbished, or recycled. Unfortunately,
    electronic discards is one of the fastest growing
    segments of our nation's waste stream.

    History of e-waste

    One theory is that increased regulation of electronic waste and concern over the environmental harm in mature economies creates an economic disincentive to remove residues prior to export. Critics of trade in used electronics maintain that it is too easy for brokers calling themselves recyclers to export unscreened electronic waste to developing countries, such as China, India.

    Why Recycling?

    Recycling raw materials from end-of-life
    electronics is the most effective solution
    to the growing e-waste problem. Most
    electronic devices contain a variety of
    materials, including metals that can be
    recovered for future uses. By dismantling
    and providing reuse possibilities, intact
    natural resources are conserved and air
    and water pollution caused by hazardous
    disposal is avoided. Additionally,
    recycling reduces the amount of
    greenhouse gas emissions caused
    by the manufacturing of new products.

    Benefits of Recycling

    According to a report by UNEP titled,
    "Recycling - from E-Waste to Resources," the
    amount of e-waste being produced - including
    mobile phones and computers - could rise by
    as much as 500 percent over the next decade
    in some countries, such as India.The United
    States is the world leader in producing
    electronic waste, tossing away about 3 million
    tons each year.China already produces
    about 2.3 million tons (2010 estimate)
    domestically, second only to the United States.
    And, despite having banned e-waste imports,
    China remains a major e-waste dumping
    ground for developed countries.
