(February 23, 2005) Norwalk, Conn. — E-waste (electronic waste) is a term used globally to categorize electronic equipment that has reached its end-of-life (EOL) for its current user. Such devices or equipment are generally considered toxic when disassembled or incinerated, and are typically targeted for hazardous disposal or slated for recovery and reuse. Recent technological advancements provide manufacturers with less toxic material choices and more cost-effective ways to recover electronic circuitry and associated equipment. As a result, the E-waste industry is emerging with markets that need to be assessed for growth potential.
