E-waste Volume to Increase in Coming Years

India will be confronted with the threat of accumulation of E-waste in the coming years if necessary policy and regulations are not put in place now, says a paper presented at the recently held 'Kerala Environment Congress-2010.'. The total e-waste in the country would now come to around more than 1.46 tonnes per year and this is expected to exceed eight tonnes by 2012

The biggest concern with E-waste was the presence of toxic materials such as lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic, printer cartridge inks and toners that pose significant health risks, he said. These components can contaminate soil, groundwater and air as well as affect the workers of the recycling units and the community living around it, he said.

Advocating an E-waste Policy for the country, he said main objectives should be minimising E-waste generation,using the E-waste for beneficial purposes through environment friendly recycling process and ensuring environmentally sound disposal of residual waste.

You can do your bit in recycling your E-waste by sending CashForCartridges your empty ink cartridges instead of just throwing them away.
