Electronic waste, or commonly called e-waste, needs special handling and care from regular garbage disposal and shouldn’t just be tossed in landfills. Most consumer electronics end up in landfills or get exported to less developed countries. The unwanted electronics are then mismanaged and cause public health and environmental hazards.
When electronic waste, such as televisions, batteries and monitors, are thrown in landfills, chemicals like mercury and cadmium seep into the environment and affect the land and local water supply. This causes an adverse effect on humans and animals.
One example of this public health issue involves the concern of the fish containing mercury. Within the past couple of decades, consumers have become more wary of purchasing fish because of the levels of mercury in the water that percolate into the fish, and are eventually consumed.
