The management and recycling of E-waste was assessed in the city of Bangalore (India) based on rap id growing waste stream, waste valuable resources, hazardous substances and low recycling rate. For this purpose, the personal computer was defined as the tracer and accordingly a model was designed. The model depicts th e life cycle of tracer, from production to consumption-including reuse and refurbishment-to material recovery in the formal recycling industry. The process of data collection for the study involved field survey and analysis of the available data. The analysis of data could highlight the strategy for the management of E-waste in the city. In this context, the study intends to reduce the environmental and health impacts from unscien tific E-waste management and for understanding of E-waste collection, flow, recycling. All in all E-waste management in Bangalore has moved forward in many ways and can now serve as a model for other cities and state in the country.
