  3. INTRODUCTION  Growth in the IT and communication sectors has enhanced the usage of the electronic equipment exponentially. Faster upgradation of electronic product is forcing consumers to discard old electronic products very quickly, which, in turn, adds to e-waste to the solid waste stream.  The growing problem of e-waste calls for greater emphasis on recycling e-waste and better e-waste management.
  4. WHAT IS E-WASTE ?  E-waste is any electrical or electronic equipment that’s been discarded. This includes working and broken items that are thrown in the garbage or donated to a charity reseller like Goodwill.  Often, if the item goes unsold in the store, it will be thrown away. E-waste is particularly dangerous due to toxic chemicals that naturally leach from the metals inside when buried.

  11. Is e-Waste Hazardous?  E-waste is not hazardous waste per-se. However, the hazardous constituents present in the e-waste render it hazardous when such wastes are dismantled and processed, since it is only at this stage that they pose hazard to health and environment.
  12. MANAGEMENT OF E-WASTE It is estimated that 75% of electronic items are stored due to uncertainty of how to manage it. These electronic junks lie unattended in houses, offices, warehouses etc. and normally mixed with household wastes, which are finally disposed off at landfills.  inventory management,  production-process modification,  volume reduction,  recovery and reuse.
  13. e-Waste guidelines: Salient features The guidelines notified in April 2008 - basic guidance document identifying and recognizing fundamental principles:  Producer Responsibility  RoHS (Restriction on Hazardous Substances)  Best practices  Insight into technologies for various levels of recycling The guidelines explicitly mention the need for a separate legislation for implementing ‘Producer Responsibility
  14. SPECIAL E-WASTE CHALLENGES  High Volume of e-Waste (the highest growing stream of urban solid waste generation),  Limits or restrictions to dump e-waste with Municipal Solid Waste in Landfills,  Growing number of Product Types,  Heavy, Bulky and complex Waste to process,  Requires special logistics and new handling facilities, with new e-waste processing Technology
  15. BENEFITS OF RECYCLING
  16. PLANNING AN E-WASTE PROGRAM  Determine what is best for your community or clients/consumers  Develop a Public or Private + Public or BtoB Program  Define program Goals  Evaluate Existing Logistics and/ or Infrastructure
  17. CONCLUSION  E-waste management is a great challenge for governments of many developing countries such as India. This is becoming a huge public health issue and is exponentially increasing by the day.  In order to separately collect, effectively treat, and dispose of e-waste, as well as divert it from conventional landfills and open burning, it is essential to integrate the informal sector with the formal sector.  The competent authorities in developing and transition countries need to establish mechanisms for handling and treatment of e-waste in a safe and sustainable manner.
