End-of-life management of your smartphone e-waste


Let's start with a brief definition of electronic waste, popularly known as e-waste. E-waste describes discarded electrical or electronic devices. This includes old computers, mobile phones, appliances, mp3 players, tablets, USB sticks, printers, etc. Some break down, others become obsolete as technology advances and some are simply discarded because consumers want a newer model with better performance.
