What is “E-Waste”?
As per the E-waste (Management) Rules, 2016, 'E-waste' means 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.
Electronics such as mobile phones, TVs, laptops, printers,fax machines or even their parts, which have reached the end of their useful life are called “ E-Waste”. If not recycled in an environmentally sound way, e-waste poses a range of environmental risks.
Where and how can you learn more about your E-Waste?
To recycle your waste electronic items, all you have to do is drop an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of type of Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in your city.
Alternatively, you can visit our PRO’s collection centres and collection points directly to drop off the e-waste for responsible recycling. You can also call Karo Sambhav’s toll-free number for any e-waste related queries at 1800 2121 434.
