E-waste stands for electronic waste. As you can assume from the name, e-waste is discarded electrical or electronic equipment no longer usable or wanted. This covers everything from your old smartphone when you upgrade to the newest model, power bars that no longer function, and even your refrigerator at the end of its life. If it runs on electricity, including batteries, it is likely classified as e-waste. Invigorating sustainability impacts with talent pool training. This Material Supports United Nations Sustainable Development Goals #3, #8, #11, and #12.
