Abstract

E waste management is one of the main issues faced by the IT industry. E waste management consists of both less production of e waste and the recycling of the produced ones. Accumulation of e- waste can lead to resource shortage and environmental pollution. Moreover it also makes sustainable development hard and the idea of greener IT industry impossible. The recycling of e waste also helps in lowering the cost of manufacture of products. Along with the current methods for recycling of the e waste produced, the rising trend of cloud computing can be used for e waste management. Infrastructure as a service helps in reducing the use of hardware involved in both the front and back end of the industries, considerably. This paper analyses about the various e waste produced, its recycle and how Infrastructure as a Service can be used for the reduction of hardware.
