With the pervasive use of electrical and electronic equipment in our daily operations, disposal of obsolete equipment is increasingly posing a threat to our environment. There is therefore, a need to handle such disposals referred as e-waste in a responsible manner in line with emerging global best practices and standard.
To deal with this ever-rising problem of e-waste the Government of India, through its Ministry of Environment and Forest formulated the E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules in 2016.
Balaji Solutions is commited to meet all requirement of the E-Waste Rules 2016.
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 being replaced by blu-ray players. E-waste is created from anything electronic: computers, TVs, monitors, cell phones, PDAs, VCRs, CD players, fax machines, printers, etc
Help Solve the E-Waste Problem
Solving the e-waste problem starts with education, and habit changes as a result of knowledge. Most people are trained to recycle a newspaper, bottles, and cans. Almost anything electronic in nature can be recycled properly with effort. Some municipalities have transfer stations that accept e-waste. It is important that any e-waste processor is fully certified in safe destruction and follow certified documented procedures to safely dispose of electronic waste.
