It is always nice to get a new gadget or electronic toy to play with, but how do we dispose of it when it is outdated or broken?

What is classified as E-waste?

All end of life, old or discarded appliances that use electricity can be classified as E-waste. These include;

  • Large household appliances
  • Small household appliances
  • Office equipment
  • Telecommunications Equipment

Why not just throw it away with normal household refuse?
