Technological advancements had changed the world at a fast pace, resulting in cheaper and efficient gadgets like cell phones, video games, media devices and consumer electronics.

This e-Waste had accumulated and grown in great proportions which led to a pressing and serious problem for the global environment. Lax rules and weak enforcement had worsened the situation.
