A factor contributing to the excessive increase of e-wastes in the world is the dynamics of constant technological development imposed by the industry, whose most immediate consequence is a continuous production of devices that move to their predecessors. This occurs, especially in hiperconsumistas societies of the more developed countries, major producers of the technological junk of the world.

In this way, it can be harmful both for persons handling them so wrong and unprotected, as for those who are indirectly affected as a result of environmental pollution that cause. There that there are already countries with laws intended to regulate the handling of e-waste, and others that bring forward bills for their control.
