An Indian worker sorts defunct keyboards at Ash Recyclers, a government approved e-waste management firm in Bangalore on June 5, 2013, the World Environment Day. India sits on a huge mound of e-waste as annually an estimated 800,000 tons are generated giving a new dimension to the already difficult scenario of solid waste management in the country. According to senior scientist of the Ministry of Environment and Forest, NLNS Prasad, as many as 65 cities, headed by Mumbai, contribute more than 60 per cent of the total e-waste generated in the country.
