Hazardous electronic-waste is discarded, surplus, obsolete or broken electronic equipment that is near or at the end of its useful life. E-waste contains valuable and hazardous materials that require special handling and recycling methods to be reused or recycled into a new product.
Thanks to the CSUN community, the 2013 E-waste Spring Challenge event with Planet Green lead to 356 recycled items.
