Harmful Effects of E-Waste
Most electronic waste or e-waste, as it is commonly known, is sent to landfills. Sometimes e-waste is also incinerated in landfills which release materials such as lead, mercury and cadmium to the environment. When e-waste is heated, toxic chemicals are released into soil, groundwater and atmosphere and can have an adverse impact on the environment and living beings.
Materials such as lead, zinc, barium can cause damage to human blood, kidneys and also for the nervous system. In order to prevent this, recycling of e-waste can help in reducing the harmful effects on the environment.
