Electronic waste, or e-waste, is a term for electronic products that
have become unwanted, non-working or obsolete, and have essentially reached the
end of their useful life. Because technology advances at such a high rate,
many electronic devices become “trash” after a few short years of use. In fact,
whole categories of old electronic items contribute to e-waste such as VCRs
being replaced by DVD players, and DVD players being replaced by blu-ray
players. E-waste is created from anything electronic: computers, TVs, monitors,
cell phones, PDAs, VCRs, CD players, fax machines, printers, etc.
