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 Rule 2016, the E waste 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 land filled.
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.
The company has tied-up with Hulladek Recycling Pvt Ltd, an authorised PRO for safe disposal of E-Waste collected from all over India. As a part of agreement, Hulladek Recycling Pvt. Ltd. will collect all our e-waste generated from PAN India and dispose the same. Our PRO has signed an agreement with Om Logistics Ltd. for their logistics service who will help with the collection and channelization of e-waste pan India.
