Used electronics which are destined for reuse, resale, salvage, recycling, or disposal are also considered e-waste."E-waste" is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their "useful life. In India, the quantity of “e-waste” or electronic waste has now become a major problem.

The hazardous content of these materials pose a threat to human health and environment. Discarded computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, fax machines, electric lamps, cell phones, audio equipment and batteries if improperly disposed can leach lead and other substances into soil and groundwater. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled in an environmentally sound manner so that they are less harmful to the ecosystem.
