E Waste Management and Recycling Service

 E Waste Management and Recycling Service

Electronic waste management is a phrase that carries a lot of weight in the present-day context. Technology has made our lives easier, however tech products have a limited lifespan – either because we consumers like our new shiny toys or because of planned obsolescence by the manufacturers. Once their utility is served, these products are often dumped along with other waste streams or sold to the informal processors of e-waste.

The informal sector utilizes crude extraction and recycling methods, which release harmful toxins in the open environment leading to deterioration of nature and human health. Consumers must ensure that their e-waste disposal is done in a responsible and scientific manner through authorised channels.

Saahas Zero Waste is one of the few e-waste management companies in Bangalore that is working towards scientific and sustainable disposal of electronic waste..

Under the E-Waste Management Rules, 2016, Saahas Zero Waste is authorised as a Producer Responsibility Organisation (PRO) to assist producers and manufacturers in fulfilling their Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). We do this by establishing a true reverse-logistics chain for e-waste from the end-consumer to formal e-waste recyclers.

What is E-Waste

Here are a few examples of electronic waste that needs immediate e waste management solutions:

  • IT e-waste – Personal computers (including keyboards, monitors, mouse, cables), Printers, Scanners, mobile phones (smart and feature phones), and laptops.
  • Consumer e-waste – Refrigerators, washing machines, TV sets, air conditioners, and tube lights.

How important is e-waste management?

According to GSMAdata, nearly 66.5% of the world’s population uses phones. That’s over 5 billion people with mobile devices. On an average, an individual upgrades his phone every 3- 4 years. And this is just a subset of one type of e-waste.

Do you know where your old electronic devices were dumped? Or what happened to them? Haphazard dumping of e-waste results in contamination of the environment.

Dismantling and processing of e-waste in the informal sector releases harmful toxins. Workers in this sector – which includes children – are at a high-risk of contracting diseases because of sustained exposure to these toxins. The E-Waste Management Rules, 2016 were introduced to fill these gaps in the system; to formalise electronic waste management and to legitimise formal e-waste recyclers.

Waste management recycling involves recovering recyclable items and components to bring them back into the economy.

A few examples of good e-waste management are:

  • Plastic retrieved from electronic waste is recycled to make insulators, trays, and fencing posts
  • Recovered metal is segregated, melted and recycled into new products
  • Extracted mercury from e-waste is sent to specialized facilities for recovery
  • Other non-recyclable or non-recoverable substances are sent to authorised Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities (TSDF).

Saahas Zero Waste is one of the leading e-waste management companies in India. We work with major e-waste recyclers in Bangalore and Chennai to ensure safe disposal of e-waste.
