Any electronic product or accessory which has reached the end of its useful life is called E-waste. For example, discarded or obsolete Air Conditioners, TV, Washing Machine, Refrigerator, Fluorescent and other Mercury-containing lamps, etc.
These discarded products affect the environment negatively. Apart from affecting the environment, it can also affect the health of the people; hence managing this E-waste effectively is important.
