Lack of awareness with regards to e-waste in a major issue in our country. While there have been debates done and measures taken to deal with the problem of ‘waste crisis’ but despite that the quantity of waste that gets disposed in an unorganised way has reached critical levels. Causing major damage to the ecosystem.
E waste comprises of EEE like laptops, computers, mobile phones, TVs, DVD players, home electronic appliances etc. which are often discarded by the users once they become old or obsolete. What is alarming is that it is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the world with a global average annual growth rate of 4-5%.
In order to maintain a sustainable system of waste management, there is a need to make the population of the country to be informed about the issues of waste management, the hazardous effects of nonconforming waste storage, the role of organic waste storage platforms and the need for consistent disposal and deposits of waste through a proper certified channel.
Consumers, both individuals and industries, should come together to bring about an enormous change in the scenario. The three R policy of reduce, reuse & recycle should be adopted to avoid any further damage. For companies, who believe in doing their bit for conservation of environment, we offer services for e-waste collection & recycling and provide cost effective, ethical and certified solutions to diversify the hazardous material away from the landfills. Our facilities encompass complete end-to-end solutions for processing of e-waste which are also compliant based and environment friendly.
With the constantly growing population, rising economies and progressions in innovation, the consumer oriented growth is causing a rapid product obsolescence, which has given us another ecological challenge - E-Waste. Disposal of defunct electrical and electronic devices is one of the fastest growing segments with impacts on health and environment. In India, this problem is gaining momentum along with an investment opportunity with increasing significance, given the volumes of e-waste being produced. Also, putting the duty of re-cycling of electrical and electronic wastes (e-waste) on the makers, the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) has for the first time notified "e-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2011" which will come into effect from May, 2012.
The training program is meant to highlight the global and national concerns, associated with strategies to address this issue.
