In India the handling of e-waste is regulated under the "e-waste (Management & Handling) Rules, 2011"

What is E-Waste?
Waste electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part or rejects from their manufacturing and repair process, which is intended to be discarded. It includes objects such as computers, television, VCR's, stereos, copiers, fax machines, cell phones, AC's, refrigerator etc..

What is the Problem?
India generated around 4, 00, 000 Tonnes of E waste (2011) and it's obvious that not all of it reaches for safe handling. As product they are not harmful but once they are dismantled or recycled in an inappropriate manner (using crude and hazardous methods like treatment with acids, open burning etc. for extraction of precious metals, these can cause extensive harm to the environment and human health. E-waste contains over 1000 different substances; most of it are toxic and potentially hazardous. Absence of appropriate collection/disposal systems. Huge gap between generation and recycling of e-waste

Why you have to approach authorised collection Agencies?
As per e-waste (Management and Handling) Rules 2011 it's the responsibility of producer to ensure safe disposal of e-waste. We approach the bulk consumers to maximize the collection of e-waste. However, everyone who uses electric/electronic equipment is our valuable client. So please give us e-waste and we will take care.
