significant increase in electronic waste (e-waste) in Sri Lanka during the past
one and half decades due to the increase of the use of hi-tech products,

the inauguration of the Electronic Waste Management Week at Mihilaka Medura,
BMICH, on Monday, Minister Premajayantha said the number of mobile phones in
