E-waste is any discarded electronic device or appliance, including computers, TVs and cell phones. According to the United Nations, 20 to 50 million metric tons of e-waste are generated worldwide each year.

E-waste contains a variety of toxic components, making proper disposal and recycling critical factors in dealing with the risks it creates for the environment and personal health.
