E-waste is a growing issue

E-waste is the most rapidly growing waste problem in the world. The world produces as much as 50 million tonnes of electronic and electrical waste (e-waste) a year, weighing more than all of the commercial airliners ever made. Only 20% of this is formally recycled (2). 

Is electronic waste a hazardous? 

E-waste contains extremely toxic chemicals, including: Lead, Cadmium, Dioxins, Furans, Arsenic, Mercury, DDT, PCB, Chromium, Vinyl chloride, Antimony, Beryllium... (1). Some of which can cause birth defects; damage to central and peripheral nervous systems; distorted blood composition; damaged lungs, livers, and kidneys; and death (1).
