E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their "useful life." Computers, televisions, VCR’s, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled.
Is E-Waste considered hazardous?
Certain components of some electronic products contain materials that render them hazardous, depending on their condition and density. For instance, California law currently views non-functioning CRTs (cathode ray tubes) from televisions and monitors as hazardous.
