NaijaAgroNet:

Electronic Waste (e-Waste) has been classified as an emerging threat by the United Nations (UN), reports NaijaAgroNet.

UN through its agency Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) at the occasion of World Soil Day 2018, informed NaijaAgroNet that some 50 million tones of electronic waste are generated every year.

This, they said, has made e-Waste one of the world’s fastest growing pollution problems affecting the soils.

FAO also described the situation as one man’s trash becoming another man’s treasure in the case of electronic waste.
The agency also urged those using electronic devices to think before throwing away their old devices.

“You can donate them or recycle them,” FAO experts said.

They further insisted that every man on earth could be the solution to soil pollution.
