E-WASTE MANAGEMENT

Download

Electronic waste or e-waste, is a term for electronic products that have become unwanted, non-working or obsolete and have essentially reached the end of their useful life.

As per E-waste Rules of 2016, E waste is defined as 'electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part discarded as waste by the consumer or bulk consumer as well as rejects from manufacturing, refurbishment and repair processes'.

E-waste contains many valuable, recoverable materials such as aluminium, copper, gold, silver, plastics and ferrous metals. In order to conserve natural resources and the energy needed to produce new electronic equipment from virgin resources, electronic equipment can be refurbished, reused and recycled instead of being landfilled.

E-waste also contains toxic and hazardous materials including mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium, chromium and chemical flame retardants, which have the potential to leach into our soil and water.

  •  

    Protects your surroundings - Safe recycling of outdated electronics promotes comprehensive management of toxic chemicals such as lead and mercury.

  •  

    Conserves natural resources - Recycling recovers valuable materials from old electronics that can be used to make new products. As a result, we save energy, reduce pollution, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and save resources by extracting fewer raw materials from the earth.

    Helps others - Donating your used electronics benefits your community by passing on ready-to-use or refurbished equipment to those who need it.
