E waste.......a silently rising monster
« on: January 09, 2012, 12:20:52 PM »
Electronic waste describes discarded electrical or electronic devices. With the rapid increase in the use of electrical commodities the amount of electronic waste is increasing tremendously. Due to the ignorance and lacking of knowledge about the threat possess by these waste people used to treat these waste like the normal kitchen waste. But E waste may contain contaminants such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants which can cause severe health hazard. So we should be careful about throwing those waste like batteries, cell phone, calculator etc here and there.

Its the right time to be proactive rather than reactive.

E waste management is the necessity of time time. Its hard but true that Bangladesh doesnt even have proper waste management system for daily waste while we are talking about E waste. But Govt. should look to it from a different view. These waste are usually poisonous and recycling of these things can be highly beneficial.
