Abstract
The consumption of the different products of information and communication technologies produces waste called e-waste that is more or less harmful for the environment and the human being. How is this waste collected and treated in developing countries like Chad? This article answers this question and proposes some ways for an appropriate treatment of this type of waste. Some metals with dangerous properties are presented.
