Why does my device need to be handled properly?

Electrical – electronic device contains a complex mixture of materials, components and other substances. Some substances in this mixture are harmful to human health and the environment. Although they do not pose a hazard during the normal use, these substances may become hazardous when the devices are improperly dismantled and handled.

If we send electronic waste to landfills or be dismantled by non-professionals, we will face the risk that these toxic substances will seep into soil, water and air. This will cause negative impacts on the environment and local people’s life.
