E-Collector the Android Application to Collect E-Waste

Sangunthar Karthik Kandaswamy, D. Jayakumar, S. Sivachandiran


Central issue of the current study is electronic-waste (e-waste) which is emerging as a new environmental challenge for 21st century. The rapid growth of the electronic and IT industry, present consumer culture, increasing rates of consumption of electronic products have led to disastrous environmental consequences. E-waste, while recycling, may be hazardous because of toxicity of some of the substances it consists of.  Some of the waste has been proven to contain many cancer-causing agents. Developed countries export this waste in the form of donation to developing countries.  China and India, where environmental standards are low, are the biggest recipients of e-waste which, in most cases, is processed illegally. The environmental burden of e-waste is born by people who live in developing countries, especially China and India, which processes the maximum amount of e-waste. The present study focuses on the collecting the wastages throw mobile application and recycling of the electronic waste on the natural environment.
