    Did you realize about it?

    In the name of up gradation, we change our old mobiles and purchase new mobiles. Even we replace our colour TVs and CRT monitors by LCD and LEDs. Did you care about the old ones ever? What happens to those articles? As these articles are made up of non biodegradable substances, they won't decompose and mix with the soil. They deposit as a e-waste and now it is appeared to be most hazardous waste which may create major problem in near future. The toxic chemical they contain are very harmful to the surrounding. So, don't forget to decompose such substances properly while moving for such up gradation. Control pollution and SAVE the world.

    Dear Vicky,

    Your concern for Hazardous Electronic waste is a matter to ponder about. Of course it is a serious matter, whose consequences we the human being and our forthcoming generation have to suffer. Electronic hazardous substances are increasing along with the improvement in technology.
    But the actual matter of concern is that some substances are non-biodegradable. How they can be disposed/decomposed off? Is there any method to decompose? If not then our discussion, concern, awareness all are vain. Because human being is always looking for comfort and luxurious life. It is very difficult to make oneself understand, unless until one face the consequences.

    Thanks & Regards

    Dear Krishna,
    First thing is that we should not through the e-waste outside here and there. They contains many hazardous chemicals like Lead, mercury and cadmium which can able to damage the environment. So, in spite of throwing them out or giving to "Kawadi wala" we should send those to any authorized person. They can use it for recycling purpose. You can find such persons those who are repairing monitors, printers and computers.

    With regards,

    Dear Vicky,

    The information here you shared about Electronic-waste is really a serious issue at present. These wastage becomes tons and tons of quantity each and every day. The most of E-waste are generated by the out dated Computers which has very low configuration and not able to handle the latest applications. The new Hardware and Software technologies in the field of Information Technology comes to the market every day. This features automatically replace the old one. So, The E-wastage becomes more on every day. This kind of low configuration machines can be given to Primary Government Schools. By giving this used old computers to School, It enables the poor children in the schools to get computer literacy and also it helps to prevent the E-wastage by old computers.

    Dear Vicky,

    You are wright. We should give the articles to an authorised person for decomposing it.

    @Manoharan, Your thinking is very good. We can give old obsolete computers to primary schools. But what for others? We should think some innovative to dispose off other electronic equipments.

    Thanks & Regards

    Dear Krishna,
    Please once again you read my response #1407, I am opposing to give such articles to Kawadiwala, because they won't able to decompose them properly. It is very harmful to giving such E-waste to these people. Always give them to authorized people only who can send them for recycling purpose.

    With regards,
