E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their "useful life". Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled.
Half a million tons of e-waste is generated annually in India and is a serious threat to people’s health and the environment. The flourishing Indian IT sector contributes a large part of it. The disposal of this waste is a big problem and the waste leaves a huge carbon footprint. E-waste in India is dismantled and recycled manually in a hazardous, unorganized and unsafe manner.
India's growing digital economy has contributed to the amount of e-waste it generates. According to the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board, more then 10 tones of electronic waste is produced in Bangalore alone every year and about 80 per cent of e-waste generated in the US is exported to India, China and Pakistan to be recycled.
