E-waste can be defined as reuse or recycling of scrapped electrical or electronic devices. Azizu Recycling & E-Waste Company Ltd, a waste management firm operating since 2006, has set up a factory in Narayanganj to recycle e-waste and turn the by-products into reusable items. Licensed by government organizations such as the Department of Environment, Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission and Atomic Energy Commission, this firm is involved in buying e-waste from corporations and local agents and literally turning trash into treasure. “Recycling these items can lead to the extraction of many metals such as copper, iron, aluminium and even silver and gold.
