E-waste is anything with a plug, battery or cord that is unwanted. This includes old phones, computers and household appliances as well as power tools and electronic toys.
E-waste does not belong in your landfill or recycling bin. Because e-waste contains some resources we can reuse, as well as some hazardous materials, it needs to be processed separately.
