Abstract

Sustainability addresses balance, balance between present and future essentially required for the survival of our planet. Upgradation of technology has contributed largely in generating enormous waste, the e-waste whose management has become the talk of the hour. E-waste spawns gargantuan toxic leftovers, which are detrimental for the life of Earth and the life of all organisms contained by the Earth. This review-based chapter targets to highlight and fulfill the objectives of e-waste management's prominence from an environmental perspective chiefly in developing countries. E-waste management has traumatized Earth's lifespan. Managing and maintaining it has been the core concern of all the nations particularly of the developing ones. Global e-waste management is taken care of by well-defined legislation. Extended procedure responsibility (EPR) was taken into contemplation for reckoning the trend of its eradication globally.
