E-waste, also known as electronic waste or electrical waste, has been defined as “Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) that is dependent on electric currents or electromagnetic fields in order to function.” This includes all components, subassemblies, and consumables that are part of the original equipment at the time of disposal. E-waste includes cell phones, fax machines, air conditioners, televisions, batteries, computers, laptops, washing machines, refrigerators, and any other major appliances and electrical or electronic equipment (EEE) (Brune, 2013).
