Electronic waste or e-waste is a term for electronic products that have become unwanted, non-working or obsolete, and have essentially reached the end of their useful life. Because technology advances at such a high rate, many electronic devices become “trash” after a few short years of use. In fact, whole categories of old electronic items contribute to e-waste such as VCRs being replaced by DVD players, and DVD players are replaced by blu-ray players. E-waste is created from anything electronic: computers, monitors, mobile phones, PDAs,VCRs, CD players, fax machines, printers, etc.
Electronics contain hazardous and toxic and when disposed off in landfill, toxic chemicals from the e-waste seep into the ground leaving contaminated water and soil which remains in soil forever, endangering human life and other living beings.
Handing over to scrapers would end up in only benefit them by removing the re-usable components and the balance ending up in landfills.Further the health risk and manual injuries are caused to people who haven’t the knowledge to deal with E waste and don’t adhere to disposal procedures. So it is the responsibility on everyone who generates e waste to dispose them in a safe manner.
As another effort of investing in sustainability, the CSR committee has taken an initiative on waste management which we do responsible recycling with no cost to the environment.
The objective of this project is a joint effort to solve the damages caused by the E-waste to the environment and human health. Responsible recycling with no cost to the environment is the way forward to achieve this goal. This project will systemize and practice green compliance for sustainable management of electronic waste.
Initially this project shall be valid for a term of 2 years. However this can be renewed at the discretion of the management.
