What is E-waste?
As per the E-Waste (Management) [SS1] Rules of 2016, which came into force on 1st October 2016, E-Waste refers to the electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part discarded as waste by the consumers, as well as rejects from manufacturing, refurbishment, and repair processes. E-waste contains substances that can have adverse effects on the environment as well as on human health.
Often, E-waste comprises toxic chemicals like lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs), and Polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs). If not disposed of in a scientific way, E-waste can have a detrimental impact on the environment and on human health.
