Abstract :

Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) describes discarded electrical devices. Each year, around 50-million-ton e-waste is generated in the world, from which India produce 1.5 lakh ton of e-waste annually. There is lack of concurrence as to whether the term should apply to reuse, recycle, recovery and refurbishing industries. E- waste contains hazardous materials which are very harmful to human health and environment. There is lack of knowledge in disposal methods of e-waste. This is the alarming situation to find the proper path to manage and dispose the e-waste safely. This paper discusses the present scenario of e-waste management and possible handling strategies.
