Old gadgets like broken DVD player, remote controls, tablets, cell phones; these products are more toxic when you through out into household trash or the landfill. Most of them contains hazardous materials such as lead, mercury, lithium, oxides and cadmium. When you dispose these materials in household trash, they can create toxic soup which seeps into a ground or soil.
The small and large gadgets and devices keep getting smaller, faster and more accurate by evolving technologies. Thus, e-waste grows bigger and more toxic. We are addicted to the technologies before the pandemic but with eighteen month of social distance and remote learning/living or working has upped the gadget games at a new level. For example, tablet sales increase by 43% in 2020.
However, the sad news is that only around 17.4 % of e-waste was collected to recycled, which means more than 50% of e-waste still remains the same. Unfortunately, these can have a harmful impact on the overall environment, and it risks living creatures’ health through these toxic chemicals from e-waste.
As the best e-waste management in India, ECS wants to raise awareness of recycling small electronics on this International E-waste Day, 2022. It is quite challenging to end the life of small and large electrical and electronic appliances.
The focus of International E-waste Day 2022 will be on small and large e-waste recycling items to make people aware of the importance of e-waste recycling. On this E-waste Day, this year’s theme is, “Recycle it all, no matter how small!”

Small e-waste products like camera, tablets, flip phone, mp3 player, DVD Players, charging cords, small batteries and many more ewaste that we no longer use but are often forgotten or kept in drawers, cupboards, garages, basements, attics or toss it in the recycle bin. In an average household, upto 5kgs of e-devices per person is currently hoarded.
