What is e-waste?

Virtually any product with circuitry or electrical components connected to a power/battery supply is considered to be Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE). Quite clearly, EEE is present everywhere in modern society - from household kitchens to corporate offices. Laptops, mobile phones, printers, batteries, and keyboards are among the most common types of EEE. With rapid technological advancement, EEE is only becoming more prevalent in society.

EEE becomes e-waste once it has been discarded by its owner as waste without the intent of reuse. Depending on the specifics, different types of the e-waste need to go through separate recycling/disposal processes. Similarly, if not handled appropriately, different types of e-waste have unequal and distinct effects on the environment and human health.
