Safe Handling of Electronic Waste Tailgate


Introduction: Electronics are now as much a part of our daily lives as any other consumer product. As each new product comes to the market, our old electronics, spent batteries, and other accessories become electronic waste (e-waste), and head to the waste pile. Most companies have an area to stockpile equipment and supplies before final disposal. Some companies and public entities even specialize in handling e-waste for re-use and recycling.

To minimize injury, it is important to learn how to store, handle, and process e-waste safely.
