The results from the observations suggest that very electronic appliances like refrigerator, air conditioner, oven, freezer, microwave oven and other appliances (New York State, 2015) which contains toxic element are prohibited to recycle as the dangerous gases can cause worse effects. When I made a rough guess, I was not aware of the equipment covered by electronic law signed in State Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act.
The lab assessment III helped to clear many confusions and cleared my ideas. Like Before conducting the exercise of lecture ENSC199, I was aware of e-waste hazards but not about disposal laws. The old electronic components which had completed their life stage are mostly now discarded and used as a trash and some are resold.
Before taking this lecture I was rarely interest and concerned about e-waste as I did not have the sufficient knowledge. Now by gaining knowledge regarding the importance of e-waste, I have come to know the importance of e-waste and it’s recycling so, I am moderately concerned in this regard.
Now I would try my best to follow my personal plan for e-waste recycle because e-waste is really dangerous for people and the atmosphere if not reprocessed sensibly.
Dumping of e-waste is an evolving universal ecological and public health matter, as this waste has develop into the most fast growing section of the proper public waste stream on the earth. E-waste or Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) are roughly thrown away (kishore, j & Monika, 2010), extra, obsolete, damaged, electrical or electronic devices. This issue needs urgent attention to be paid off for the prevention of hazardous environment.
