Electronic and electrical products which are discarded or reaching their end of life are called e-waste or electronic waste. With the booming Indian economy and changing technology at a faster pace, product life cycles have become shorter. Due to the presence of toxic materials in these products, recycling them or disposing them off in a safe and environmentally friendly manner becomes essential. Lack of organised segregation processes has created more harm to the people involved in the process. Constitution of India says that every individual has got the right to live a pollution free life. This study would help us understand the awareness level and attitude of students and faculties towards e-waste segregation in academic institutions in Bangalore as they are one of the major producers of e-waste due to implementation of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Higher Education.
