Sustainable development beckons handling waste responsibly.

To maintain our resources for future use, we all need to make every effort to reduce and reuse. Whatever waste remains needs to be disposed of in a responsible and lawful manner. The primary objective of waste management is to protect the public and the environment from potentially harmful effects of waste and its irresponsible disposal.  

This publication deals specifically with electronic waste and its impact on environment. It is a small effort to analyse as to where we stand and what we have to achieve in future. The e-waste is a hazardous waste. This handbook is an attempt to open our eyes towards increasing piles of e-waste and their responsible disposal, thereby lessening negative environment impact. It discusses global perspective and Indian scenario of e-waste disposal.
