What is E Waste

What is E-Waste
E-waste is electronic products that are unwanted, not working, and nearing or at the
end of their “useful life.” Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax
machines are everyday electronic products.
The ongoing challenge of how best to dispose of used and unwanted electronics isn’t a
new one and dates back at least to the 1970s. But a lot has changed since then,
particularly the number of electronics being discarded today.
We also have something else today: a term for this issue. After several terms got
suggested, including “Digital rubbish,” a consensus formed around the simple word “e-
waste.”
