Electronic waste can have a high level of danger because of contaminants like mercury, beryllium, cadmium, lead and brominated flame retardants discharging of which into environment may lead to formation of defeat and to pollution of surroundings. Methods of each country to solve this problem are different but, in general, the aim is to reduce negative environmental impacts through recycling and reuse. However, of these two alternatives, recycling is less environmentally beneficial than reuse. Consequently, reuse should be prioritized in order to reduce environmental risk. Reuse-is the possibility to select parts of manufactured goods that may be exposed to treatment through determination of waste characteristics and extending the use of electronic products or their components.
