Electrical and electronic waste

eeo

Waste electrical and electronic equipment or e-waste is any discarded appliance or device containing a battery, circuit or cable. E-equipment requires electric current or an electromagnetic field to operate. Globally, there is no single e-waste classification format, e.g. in the US, white goods are not included in this category.
