E-waste, a hazardous reality of today

E-waste or electronic waste refers to the trash generated from surplus, broken or obsolete electronic devices.

The rate of e-waste is growing at a rapid speed and a recent study pointed that between 2014 to 2017 alone, the percentage of world population covered by e-waste legislation jumped from 44% to 66%. It is estimated that every year, worldwide, between 20-50 million tons of e-waste is tossed into landfills out of which only 10 to 18 percent of total worldwide e-waste generation is recycled.

What is even more shocking is that much of the e-waste generated in the U.S. is exported to countries like China, Pakistan, Nigeria, Ghana and India; creating a major dumping problem in these countries as well.

E-waste recycling therefore becomes of utmost significance because it enables us to recover various valuable metals and other materials from electronic items, leading benefits like:

  • Saving natural resources & energy
  • Reduce pollution
  • Conservation of landfill space
  • Job creation

Role of PRO in e-waste management

As per new e-waste management rules 2016, it has now become mandatory for bulk consumers, producers and manufacturers of all electrical & electronic equipment to abide by their EPR. These rules clearly indicate the responsibility of bulk producer of electronic goods to channelize their e-waste for responsible recycling.
