The E-waste poses a lot of health hazards due to high lead content of these wastes and hence if they are left untreated it will lead to pollution of soil,underground water and can be dangerous to stray animals which can consume these wastes. The best part is to treat this waste and extract the metal and reuse the chemicals. This will reduce health hazards caused by e-waste and also stop pollution of soil and underground water.
