About the Course

Recycling is considered environmentally friendly because it prevents hazardous waste, including heavy metals and carcinogens, from entering the atmosphere, landfills or waterways. While electronics consist of a small fraction of total waste generated, they are far more dangerous. There is stringent legislation designed to enforce and encourage the sustainable disposal of appliances. The most notable is the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive of the European Union and the United States National Computer Recycling Act.

The term 'Waste Management' collectively means the management of waste from its inception to the final disposal stage. Thus, as one single unit, it encompasses right from the collection, disposal, and recycling to which the processes of monitoring and regulation, respectively, belong, along with the legal frameworks that enable the occurrence of waste management.

"E-waste" is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their "useful life." E-Wastes are considered dangerous, as specific components of some electronic products contain hazardous materials, depending on their condition and density. The hazardous content of these materials poses a threat to human health and the environment. Discarded computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, fax machines, electric lamps, cell phones, audio equipment, and batteries can leach lead and other substances into soil and groundwater if improperly disposed of. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled in an environmentally sound manner to be less harmful to the ecosystem.
