Disadvantages : 

Disadvantages Metals like mercury, cadmium, lead leaches into the soil and ground water making them polluted Requires large amount of space It is not a environmentally sound treatment

Incineration It is a controlled and complete combustion process, in which the waste material is burned in specially designed incinerators at a high temperature (900-1000oC). Definition:- Incinerator

Slide 23: 

Advantages Disadvantages Reduction of waste volume Utilization of energy of combustible substances hazardous substances are converted into less hazardous substances Emission of harmful gases and residues Emission of cadmium and mercury

Re-Use : 

Re-Use Definition:- It constitutes direct use or use after slight modifications to the original functioning equipment.

Advantages : 

Advantages Electronic equipments like computers, cell phones etc. can be re-used. This method also reduces the volume of e-waste generation. no wastage of time and money

E-Waste in INDIA : 

E-Waste in INDIA over 2 million e-waste is generated every year Harmful techniques like burning wires are common practice in the informal recycling sectors in big cities in India.
