When did we start realizing that e-waste was going to be a problem?

    One of the first occasions the international community came together to address the problem of e-waste was in 1989 at the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal. The convention regulated e-wastes so that they must be treated in their country of origin, in order to avoid the transboundary transportation of such hazardous substances. 164 countries, including the United States, ratified the convention rules, which have been in place since 1992.
