E-WASTE RECYCLING POLICY

Electronic waste, commonly known as e-waste, is the trash generated from surplus, broken, and obsolete electronic devices. These products contain toxic and hazardous chemicals and materials that can be harmful to the environment if they’re not disposed of properly. To ensure that electronic devices are properly managed, the government of India, through its Ministry of Environment and forest, formulated the E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules in 2011.

Narayani International is fully committed to adhering to the e-waste rules set by the Government of India.

ADVERSE EFFECTS OF E-WASTE

  • Toxic materials contained in e-waste can cause damage to human health if released into the environment
  • When e-waste heats-up, the toxic materials mix with the air and damage the atmosphere
  • E-waste that is discarded in landfills releases its toxic materials into the earth, seeping into groundwater and affecting land and sea animals
  • Discarding electronic devices causes a steady decrease of natural resources

WHAT IS E-WASTE RECYCLING?

E-waste recycling refers to the reuse and reprocessing of electrical and electronic equipment of any type that has been discarded or regarded as obsolete. Proper management of e-waste can lead to the reduction of environmental destruction, decrease of toxins in the air and preserve ecological balance. By following a few simple steps, we can all contribute to helping the environment.

HOW TO RECYCLE E-WASTE

  • When you have an electronic product that is obsolete do not throw it in the garbage
  • Do not dismantle any e-waste by yourself
  • After it becomes non-functional, keep the e-waste in an isolated space to prevent accidental breakage
  • Hand over all electrical and electronic products only to an AUTHORIZED RECYCLER for disposal

BENEFITS OF RECYCLING E-WASTE

Conserve Natural Resources

E-waste if full of valuable metals like gold, copper, silver and rare earth minerals. With constant production of electronic goods, we're depleting the earth of non-renewable rare-earth minerals every day. It is, therefore, crucial to recycle these materials to ensure that we don’t run out on natural resources in the future.

Reduce Energy Consumption

By recycling e-waste, we can reduce the duration of production significantly. Manufacturing a product from recycled material is less time consuming and more energy-efficient since the raw material is readily available and need not undergo the tedious process of extraction, transportation, refining etc.

Prevent Pollution

When e-waste is properly managed, we can avoid various environmental hazards. Through recycling, we can decrease pollution in air, water and land to reduce the effects of global warming.
