E-waste is an important issue for India for several reasons. It accounts for four per cent of global e-waste and 2.5 per cent of global GDP (2014 figures) – so it has a higher share of e-waste than its share of gross domestic product (GDP). The US, on the other hand, accounts for a lower share of global e-waste than its share of GDP.
On the other hand E-waste is a dangerous material to dispose of improperly and irresponsibly due to toxic heavy metals such as mercury and lead and corrosive chemicals. These substances can cause serious damage when they are disposed of in the trash and subsequently end up in the landfill. When this happens, chemicals can seep (or leach) into surrounding groundwater causing serious harm to individuals, as well as the environment.
