Abstract :

In recent decades, the use of electronic and electrical devices has increased significantly, leading to rapidly rising amounts of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).Electronics industry is considered as the world’s largest and fastest growing manufacturing industry. The electronic devices reach at the end of their useful life: they become a waste (e-waste) of waste Electrical and electronics equipment (WEEE). ‘e-waste’ is a term used to describe old, end-of-life electronic appliances such as computers, laptops, TV’s, radios, refrigerators etc., which have been discarded by users. Increased consumption of electrical and electronic equipment due to its utilization in the day to day life of individuals has indirectly explained the increase in the generation of e waste. The management of e waste has become an environmental concern in many developing countries as urbanization continues to take place. The current practices of e-waste management in India suffer from a number of drawbacks like unhealthy conditions of informal recycling, inadequate legislation, and poor awareness. India is facing the problem of e-waste management due to lack of awareness among people about dangerous effect of e-waste on environment and human being through informal e-waste collection and absence of implementation of rules for the process of e-waste in environment friendly manner. This paper focuses on the current status of e waste in India, problems associated with e waste, e waste handling practices, strategies and rules for handling e waste. The aim of this paper is also to identify the attitude of consumers towards e waste handling practices, e waste disposal and e waste recycling in some areas of Aurangabad City(Maharashtra).
