E-waste or electronic waste refers to outdated consumer and business gadgets. They are fragile and susceptible to wear and tear, regardless of how robust they may be. Most of them are damaged, but some of them are still in functional condition.
E-waste is a broad category that includes a wide array of products. However, it remains unclear what exactly constitutes an e–waste. E-waste can be defined as anything that uses electricity, is connected to an electrical outlet, and has circuit boards.
Electronic equipment evolves rapidly. People prefer newer models and the continuous modernization of electronic equipment leaves behind a lot of e-wastes. The older units are often left behind due to change in taste and preference and this buying habit encourages the rapid increase in E-Waste which becomes difficult to dispose of as they become obsolete.
E-waste is hazardous and requires special disposal techniques. Drop boxes have been set up by retail shops and manufacturing companies so that customers can dispose of their unwanted gadgets.
