Abstract

The act of extensive, reckless and haphazard disposal of e-waste for monetary gains mostly, coupled with governments inefficiency and unorthodox systematic control of it in any society is without a doubt extremely dangerous and harmful to the society`s public health and economy as a whole. The untreated e- waste poses enormous threat to public health and the quality of life of the people in general. It also shatters and renders the environment inexplicably unproductive. In addition, it is the socially and economically weaker sections of the society, who suffer the most in these situations. With the number of the souls purchasing electrical and electronic goods increasing manifolds, many areas are being used as a dumping ground for e-wastes, and weaknesses in governmental waste management processes has made WEEE become a serious dilemma. Previously the environmental and sustainability management of e-waste has received low priority. Lack of financial resources, institutional weaknesses, improper choice of technology and public unawareness towards WEEEM are some of the factors that contributed to the upward slide of seeing E-Waste as a problem. However on the flip side of the coin, the economic benefits of WEEE through recovery and recycle of the materials, which can later be reused and re-sold as secondary materials is a very good source of job creation for individuals and revenue generation for businesses. To address this serious matters and also lay out a framework for the times ahead, various recommendations have been made and three business models have been advocated for the management of E-Waste as a part of the research.
