E-waste has been defined as “waste electrical and electronic equipment, whole/in part or rejects from their manufacturing and repair process, which are intended to be discarded.” In other words, E-waste or Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment is the term used to describe old, end-of-life or discarded appliances using electricity. With the increase in usage and dependence on electrical and electronic gadgets such as washing machines, refrigerators, air conditioners etc. there has been increased in E-waste generation in large quantities. A UN report estimates that the worldwide generation of E-waste is around 30 to 50 Million tonnes per annum. E-waste generally consists of those substances which are hazardous for the environment and can seriously affect the health of human beings.
Benefits of recycling of old electronic products/why recycle?
1. Saves Natural Resources:
There is a need to encourage recycling of all useful and valuable material from E-waste so as to conserve the ever depleting natural resources. Recycling end-of-life products are vital if we are to save resources and minimize waste.
2. Reduces Environmental Pollution:
Scientific disposal of E-waste reduces the environment pollution. Moreover, making products from recycled materials creates less air and water pollution than making products from virgin materials.
3. Alternate Resource:
With virgin resources facing rapid depletion, E-waste can be a good alternate resource since it contains many valuable and recoverable materials such as aluminium, copper, gold, silver and ferrous materials.
Negative consequences of the disposal of the product in an unscientific manner
1. Health Risks:
E-waste-connected health risks may result from direct contact with harmful materials such as lead, cadmium, chromium, brominated flame retardants or polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), from inhalation of toxic fumes, as well as from accumulation of chemicals in soil, water and food.
2. Children Are Vulnerable:
Children require more specific protection from E-waste exposure. As they are still growing, their air, water and food intake are more as compared to adults- and with that the risk of hazardous chemical absorption. Moreover, it may cause irreversible damage to their central nervous system, immune system, reproductive and digestive system.
3. Environmental Degradation:
Oil and gases which are present in E-waste such as compressor and CRT cause environmental pollution. Burning of rubber and plastic in the open area causes air pollution.
Accidental breakage/damage of electronics & E-waste:
Accidental breakage and damage of electronics and E-waste can pose a threat to the environment. As long as the toxic components in electronics are enclosed within the original manufacturer’s designed outer-shell of the gadget, they don’t pose much of a danger as they have been engineered to contain any such effects. However, accidental breakage or damage of such electronics or E-waste can lead to toxic elements leaking and contaminating their immediate environment. Damage to the environment due to accidental breakage of E-waste is a major concern in informal E-waste disposal and recycling facilities, so consumers need to ensure that they dispose of their E-waste only at authorized E-waste recycler.
Brief about E-waste (Management) rules 2016
The E-waste (Management) Rules, 2016 have been notified with a primary objective to channelize the E-waste generated in the country for environmentally sound recycling which is largely controlled by the unorganized sector who are adopting crude practices that results into higher pollution and less recovery, thereby causing wastages of precious resources and damage to the environment.
