So, what exactly is e-waste?
E-waste is basically waste/trash related to electricity. If it’s powered by electricity (e.g. batteries, cable), it’s considered e-waste. Common e-waste in your household may include mobile phones, computers, refrigerators, etc. But why do we need to recycle e-waste? Many types of e-waste contain harmful substances that can pollute and/or contaminate the environment. Also, e-waste contains precious metals, such as gold and silver, that can be reused.
