WHY YOU SHOULD RECYCLE E-WASTE

Choose between recycling and mining

Necessary actions must be taken while disposing of E-waste

The time has come to think what happens to the discarded electronic items each time when we replace our laptop, cell phone, printer, charges etc.? Sadly, these items either end up in garbage or we sale to Kabadies for a nominal money, primarily because of lack of awareness of the correct disposal methods to us.

India generates approximately 3.2 millionMTPA and only 5% of it gets recycled. As per a study, India is one of the largest contributors of e-waste and very close to kiss China, USA, and Japan.

For safe & secured disposal of e-waste, we may opt for any of the following ways:

  • Return to Producers: You may opt to return the discarded electronic devices to any of manufacturers of such items.OEMs such as Apple, Dell, Toshiba, LG, Samsung, Voltas, Blue Star and others have necessary arrangements with the Authorized Recycling Facilities for disposal.

Bulk Consumers & Producers of Electrical & Electronic Equipment

The problem of e-waste has compounded in recent years. According to a report by UN agencies, World Economic Forum and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the world produces nearly 50 million tons of e-waste annually of which only 20% is formally recycled. Looking at the growing consumption of electronic equipment, it is estimated that the generation of the e-waste will be more than 120 million tons annually by 2050.

India, which has emerged as the world’s second largest mobile market, is also the third largest producer of e-waste, annually discarding 3.2 million MTPA of electronic waste. Traditional forms of managing e-waste includes unhygienic storage, incineration, leaching, dumping and illegal trading at a very high cost of environmental degradation. Looking at the alarming rate of generation of e-waste, there are following expectations:

  • Reduce hazardous substances at the time of production
  • Extensive use and reuse
  • Scientific Recycling as per the E-waste Management Rules

There is an immediate need for the businesses & producers to implement responsible recycling of end of life electrical & electronic equipment as per the E-waste Management Rules with the help of authorized e-waste recyclers. Producers of electrical & electronic devices are also obligated to get end of life equipment collected from the end user to perform their duty under Extended Producers’ Responsibility as defined in the Rules. Certainly, there is a cost associated with all the above obligations & responsibilities but Producers & Businesses will agree that they can afford costs out of their CSE & EPR Funds.

There is a need for businesses to implement responsible reuse and recycling of end of life electrical & electronic equipment such as computers, cell phones, printers, laptops, cables, fridges, washing machines, air conditioners, etc. through authorized e-waste recyclers and safeguard the environment. Producers of electrical & electronic devices are also obligated to get the end of life equipment collected from the end-user to perform their duty under Extended Producers’ Responsibility as defined in the rules.

E-waste is not just waste but contains several metals consisting of ferrous, non-ferrous, gold, silver etc. over & above several types of plastic and glass. At the same time, the recyclers take care of segregating hazardous elements from these dead equipment so that the same are disposed of properly to avoid mixing with water, air & soil.
