Managing & Handling E-Waste, Responsibly

Our E-Waste Management Policy

The Information and Communication revolution has brought enormous changes in the way we organize our lives, our economies, industries and institutions. These spectacular developments in modern times have undoubtedly enhanced the quality of our lives, but at the same time, have led to manifold problems including the problem of massive amount of hazardous waste and other waste generated from electric products. Such waste poses a serious threat to human health and environment. The issue of proper management of such hazardous E-Waste is therefore critical to the protection of livelihood, health and environment.

To deal with this ever-rising problem of E-Waste, E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2016, as amended by E-waste (Management) Amendment Rules, 2018 were published by the government of India, in the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate change.

Commtel Stands Committed to Implement the E-Waste Rules

E-waste-icon

The Basel Convention defines wastes as:

“Substances or objects, which are disposed-off or are intended to be disposed-off or are required to be disposed-off by the provisions of national laws”.

E-Waste has been defined as:

“Waste electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part or rejects from their assembly, integration, site installation and commissioning and repair process, which are intended to be discarded.”

Whereas, Electrical and electronic equipment has been defined as “Equipment which is dependent on electrical currents or electro-magnetic fields to fully functional”.

Like hazardous waste, the problem of e-waste has become an immediate and long-term concern as its unregulated accumulation and recycling can lead to major environmental problems endangering human health. This calls for an urgent need for E-Waste Management so as to preserve the ecological balance and reduce landfills. Recycling end-of-life products is vital if we are to save resources and minimize waste.

E- Waste Collection Programme:

As an environmentally responsible corporate organization we hereby ensure environmentally safe and sound management of e-waste, so we Commtel Networks Private Limited have tied up with Reteck Envirotech Private Limited a Producer Responsibility Organisation (PRO) who will support us in the channelization of E-waste from end customer to the dismantling premise and establishment of collection points.

100% recycling and disposal through authorized recycler to avoid the adverse effects of E-Waste

Adverse Effects of E-Waste

  • Batteries contains highly hazardous elements.
  • Burning of rubber & Plastic in open area causes air pollution.
  • Bad impact on human beings, animals, and other animates.
  • Wastage of natural resources.

  • Please call on toll free number 1800-209-8011 for collection of E-Waste. 

Why Recycle?

Conserve Resources

Creation requires raw resources. But when we recycle, extant material is put to use. Recycling saves this extraction of the fresh raw resources, and revives the existing ones that are no longer of use. This way there is lesser exploitation and more conservation of natural resources.

Save Resources

Save Energy

Each time we recycle a product, it requires lesser energy than producing a new one from the scratch. The considerable difference in manufacturing time is a result of skipping the usual process of extraction of raw material, its transportation, refining etc., which is way more than having a market ready product that to have a raw material ready for production.

Prevent Pollution

Production and disposal of products require a great deal of extraction, refining, processing and dumping of material, which have larger impact on the environment. By recycling, we cut down the pollution of air, water and land, thus reducing the greenhouse gas emission and avoiding any contribution to global warming.

Don'ts for E-Waste

  • The product should not be opened/dismantled by the User himself/herself, but only by authorized service personnel.
  • The product is not meant for re-sale to any unauthorized agencies/scrap dealer
  • The product is not meant for mixing into household waste stream.
  • Do not keep any replaced spare part(s) from the product in exposed area

Terms and Conditions

  • This initiative is a step towards our commitment for a cleaner and greener earth.
  • This move is one of the ways to show that we are concerned and thus we request all our customers to join this movement to make it successful by way of contributing their end-of-life product.
