Importance of E-waste Management

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), when harmful elements leached from E-Waste come into direct contact with humans, animals, or the environment, health concerns and environmental degradation can occur. Lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are examples of poisonous materials (PCBs). Inhalation of hazardous gases, as well as the accumulation of toxins in soil, water, and food, can cause serious health problems. As a result, tainted water and food will enter the human food chain, with negative consequences.

This contamination endangers not just individuals but also the environment. The risks are particularly high in developing nations because some rich countries send their e-waste to for disposal. However, in light of the dangers of E-Waste, rules have been created that restrict the import and export of E-Waste. It has been discovered that worldwide e-waste has negative consequences not just for those who work with it, but also for those who live in its vicinity.

Due to a lack of understanding about E-Waste, it is difficult to manage it. As a result, a comprehensive recycling process must be implemented to protect us and future generations.
