Electronic waste or E-waste describes discarded electrical or electronic devices. It includes discarded computers, office electronic equipment, entertainment device electronics, mobile phones, television sets, and refrigerators. Some of them are reusable. There are many hazardous and non-hazardous heavy metals present in E-wastes. The dumping of these substances into the environment causes many detrimental effects to the living organisms. Microorganism plays an important role in the degradation of heavy metal contaminated soil as well as waste water. In the present study bacteria was isolated from E-waste contaminated soil which was collected from an integrated waste management industry. Direct inoculation method was carried out for the isolation of the bacteria. Nutrient broth was used as the medium. Soil was serially diluted up to 10-10 dilutions. Out of 10 dilutions 10-5and 10-6serial dilution onto the nutrient agar medium by spread plate method. It was then sub cultured into nutrient broth. Morphological and biochemical characterization were done for the tested microorganisms to obtain the effective isolate. The isolate was found to be gram positive rods.
