Sweety Joy C. [2] | Naibin George [2] | Dr. Andrejs Cekuls [2]

Abstract: Lack of technical expertise, subpar infrastructure, insufficient funding, and passive community involvement all contribute to difficulties in managing electronic trash (E-waste). This article offers a thorough overview of attempts to address these issues concerning inadequate recycling practices for e-waste and their harmful impacts on the environment and human health. It also shows informal sectors in e-waste management in developing countries (India) follows a cradle-to-grave approach. The appropriate management of E-waste requires the establishment of an inventory of obsolete electronic items, which can be done by setting up an eco-friendly legal framework for recycling. E-waste management policies implemented systematically in developing nations and best practices are anticipated to reduce negative effects while preserving a resilient and sustainable ecosystem.
