e-waste are used electronics products which are nearing the end of their "useful life which can be reuse, resale, salvage, recycling or disposal. e-waste are computers, mobile phones, toys, TVs, white goods,any household or business item with circuitry or electrical components with power or battery supply. The hazardous contents from e-waste are pose a serious threat to human health and environment. Discarded computers, cell phones, stereos, electric lamps, copiers, audio equipment, fax machines, televisions, and batteries if improperly disposed can leach lead and other substances into soil and groundwater. All electronic scrap components, constituents lead, cadmium, and mercury, nickel could pose risks to human health or the environment if mismanaged at their end-of-life. Even in developed countries recycling and disposal of e-waste involve significant risk to workers and communities and also avoid unsafe exposure in recycling and leaking of materials such as toxic heavy metals from landfills and incinerator ashes. It is difficult to quantify global e-waste amounts .This raises concerns about resource efficiency and also the immediate concerns of the dangers to humans and the environment. The population exposed to potentially hazardous substances through inappropriate and unsafe management practices related to disposal and recycling of end-of-life e-waste. Exposure routes can vary dependent on the substance and recycling process. Exposure to the hazardous components of e-waste is most likely to arise through ingestion, inhalation, and dermal contact. Additionally direct occupational (informal or formal) exposure, people can come into contact with e-waste materials, and associated pollutants, through contact with contaminated water, air, dust, soil, and through food sources, including meat, fish. Children, fetuses, elderly people, people with disabilities, pregnant women, workers in the informal e-waste recycling sector, and other vulnerable populations face additional exposure risks such as Skin disease, lung cancer, brain damage, kidney disease and abortion. Many people around the e-waste dumped site are affected heavily. OMICS Group International is a blend of Open Access publications and worldwide international science conferences and event Organizer.
