WHY e-WASTE IS A PROBLEM?

Serious problem not only  quantity but also toxic ingredients (such as Pb, Hg, Cd, Cr, brominated flame retardants (BFR)) which create occupational and environmental health threats and hazards.

E-waste contains over 1000 different substances many of them are toxic and creates serious pollution problems upon landfilling/burning.
