Abstract

E-waste is a new term coined in the market of hazardous substances. It has taken a new bourgeoning route since the boom of Information Technology (IT). The problems regarding the transportation, handling and dispose have to be tackled at the earliest as it might cause detrimental effects on environment. Presently in India there is no distinct and lucid regulation(s) regarding e-waste management. There should one stop solution! In the present paper, some of the Technical and E-Management Strategies that can be implemented by adopting 4 R’s policy -reduce, recovery, recycle and reuse are discussed.
