When we throw out our electronics, they land up in Landfill causing the possibility of toxic metal leaching into the groundwater. Toxic metals in e-waste leach into our supply of resources, threatening their integrity. When e-waste is openly heated which is a rudimentary process by the un-registered user or scrap dealers, toxic chemicals are released into the air, damaging the atmosphere and posing a serious threat to health and existing life.
E-Waste management is an environmental problem for future generations as proper e-waste recycling is hardly done.
It is crucial to know effects of e-waste on the environment, and make a collective effort to build awareness and systems to curb all its ill positioning for our existing and future generation.

When dumped in landfills, many workers break the products & its spares parts (PCBs etc.) and expose themselves to dangerous levels of lead. The lead poisoning is a well-known health hazard and is especially harmful to young children.
It has been demonstrated that the trace amounts of chlorine compounds within liquid crystals may generate dioxins when liquid crystal glass is incinerated, as is typical in many informal e-waste recycling centres. Dioxin exposure has been linked to many serious diseases, including type 2 diabetes, ischemic heart disease, and chloracne.
