E-Waste Management

The IT revolution has upgraded our lifestyle significantly. However, with this fast and unavoidable technological advancements, E-Waste is also increasing rapidly. E-Waste poses a serious threat to human health and the environment.

So, it becomes mandatory to take proper steps to manage E-Waste carefully to control its adverse effects on the environment and mankind.

To deal with E-Waste, the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change, Govt. of India, has introduced the E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules in 2016.

According to The Basel Convention,

Wastes have been defined as,

“Substances or objects, which are disposed of or are intended to be disposed of, or are required to be disposed of by the provisions of national laws”.

E-Waste has been defined as,

“Waste electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part or rejects from their manufacturing and repair process, which are intended to be discarded.”

Whereas, Electrical and Electronic Equipment has been defined as,

“Equipment which is dependent on electrical currents or electromagnetic fields to fully functional”.

Like any other hazardous waste, the problem of e-waste has become an immediate and long-term concern as its unregulated accumulation and recycling can lead to major environmental problems that can be harmful to our health and safety. This calls for an urgent need for E-Waste Management System so as to preserve the ecological balance and reduce health issues. Recycling end-of-life products is vital in order to save resources and minimize waste.

In this regard, we are going to tie-up with one of the world’s largest Authorized E-Waste Recycler to help people for facilitating our organization and customers to enable them to dispose of E-Waste .

As an environment-conscious organization, we have initiated various activities to promote E-Waste Recycling as much as possible.

Adverse Effects of E-Waste

  • Toxic materials present in e-waste get mixed with earth, air, water, etc, and cause health issues.
  • Oil & Gases which are present in e-waste like compressor and CRT causes environmental pollution.
  • Batteries contain highly hazardous elements.
  • Burning of Rubber & Plastic in open areas causes air pollution.
  • Wastage of natural resources.

How Can You Contribute To A Greener Environment

  • All electrical and electronic products are required to be handed over only to the authorized recycler for recycling.
  • The E-Waste product should be handed over only to an authorized recycler for disposal.
  • Keep the e-waste in an isolated area, after it becomes non-functional/un-repairable so as to prevent its accidental breakage.
  • Please mail us at info@amazingelectronics.in for the collection of E-Waste.

Why Recycle

Conserve Resources

Production of new products involves raw resources. But when we recycle, extant material is put to use. Recycling saves this extraction of the fresh raw resources and revives the existing ones that are no longer of use. This way there is lesser exploitation and more conservation of natural resources.

Save Energy

Each time we recycle a product, it requires lesser energy than producing a new one from the scratch. The considerable difference in manufacturing time is a result of skipping the usual process of extraction of raw material, its transportation, refining, etc., which is way more than having a market-ready product that to have a raw material ready for production.

Prevent Pollution

Production and disposal of products require a great deal of extraction, refining, processing, and dumping of material, which have a larger impact on the environment. By recycling, we cut down the pollution of air, water, and land, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions and avoiding any contribution to global warming.

Don’ts for E-Waste

  • The product should not be opened/dismantled by the user.
  • The product should not be re-sold to any unauthorized agencies/scrap dealers.
  • The product should not be kept together with the everyday household waste stream.

Terms and Conditions

  • Products offered for recycling are not eligible for exchange offers.
  • The service is available as per conditions applicable in the respective area by recyclers.

This initiative is a step towards our commitment to a cleaner and greener earth.

This move is one of the ways to show that we are concerned about the environment and thus we request all our customers to join this movement to make it successful by way of contributing their end-of-life product.
