What is E-Waste?

E-waste is the disposal of electronic products. Improper disposal affect human and environmental health, because many of these products contain toxic substances.

 

Improper disposal could be dumping your old analog TV in a parking lot or field by your house; sending it to a landfill; or a recyclling manufacturer illegally shipping it overseas. The key to remember is that improper disposal could cause a harmful impact that affects your backyard.

 

The impact of e-waste in regard to televisions has been sped up by the digital transition, as many individuals and businesses replace analog TVs with digital models.
