Discuss briefly the following:

Defunct ships and e-wastes

Answer :

Defunct ships and e-wastes

Defunct ships are the abandoned or broken down ships which are in no longer use. These ships are a pool of scrap metal, along with other things, and disposing of such ships is quite a troublesome task. The sunken ships too add up to the waste. Proper techniques to utilise and dispose them should be adopted.

Irreparable computers and electronic goods come under the category of electronic wastes. E-wastes are either dumped into the landfills or incinerated. Developed countries have specific facilities to take care of such wastes whereas developing countries adopt manual segregation. Recycling is the only option available for the treatment of electronic wastes.
