Electronic Waste Management in India

Electronic Waste Management in India

Electronic items that are nearing the end of their “useful life” are sometimes referred to as “e-waste.” Common electronic products include computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines. Numerous of these items can be recycled, repaired, or reused.

The Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 identified some components of the electronic waste stream and added administrative regulations to the systems for recovering and recycling them above and beyond the material handling universal waste regulations. For updates on laws, rules, and policies influencing the management of e-waste, please visit our regulatory information area. For a thorough description of the Covered Electronic Waste Recycling Program, please visit our program page.

What should I do with my outdated electronics?

Here, the maxim “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” is applicable.

  • Through wise purchasing and proper maintenance, you may lower the amount of electronic trash you produce.
  • Reuse still-operational electronic equipment by giving it to someone who can still use it or selling it to them.
  • Products that can’t be fixed should be recycled.

Why is EPR registration necessary for plastic waste and E-waste management? 

 An E-Waste Management license, also known as an EPR Certificate, or Extended Producer Responsibility / EPR Authorization certificate, is a required authorization for manufacturers in the electronic industry. The phrase Electronic Trash Management refers to the disposal of electronic waste in a way that has no detrimental influence on the environment.

Extended Producer Responsibility for Plastic Waste is an abbreviation for Extended Producer Responsibility for Plastic Waste. 

EPR is a government initiative that lays responsibility for the handling and disposal of consumer goods on the shoulders of the maker and importer. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) of the MoEFCC, Government of India, issues EPR certificates.
It is a practice that incorporates environmental, economic, and social factors. This strategy assists in transferring responsibility to the producer and maker, which may drive garbage reductionat the point of generation, environmentally friendly product creation, and recycling and waste management.

Plastic trash EPR: Producers, manufacturers, brand owners, and importers are held accountable by EPR for collecting and recycling a set volume of plastics that they sell and distribute.

 EPR Certification in India

Accepting responsibility for dealing with electronic waste requires an EPR Certificate. That is why, in addition to electronic firms, EPR certification is appropriate for E-waste management organizations, which particularly manage electronic trash. 

Aside from e-waste management firms, people who import e-waste from other nations are awarded an EPR certificate for import in India.


Inventory Management 

We provide a thorough accounting of e-waste disposal. For our client’s records and to be referenced in our¬†Certificate of Recycling, inventory reports include the brand name, model, year, and serial number of each piece of equipment recycled.
In recent years, the disposal of televisions, laptops, and other devices has expanded tremendously. The most difficult disposal components of contemporary devices are the cathode ray tubes (CRTs) in computer displays and televisions. CRTs contain a lot of lead, which is bad for the environment. 

Recycling and disposal cover a wide range of equipment that is disassembled and pieces broken in-house, baled, or packed for shipping to downstream approved facilities in accordance with DOT requirements.

Recycling and disposal encompass a wide range of equipment that is dismantled and parts are broken in-house, baled, or packed for shipment in accordance with DOT rules to downstream licensed recyclers specializing in metals, plastics, or other materials, and then re-introduced into the industrial manufacturing stream for the production of common consumables.
Recycled equipment includes, but is not limited to, mainframe and desktop computers, PDAs, CRT and LCD monitors, tablets, notebooks, any peripheral, desktop, and self-standing copiers and printers, LCD and CRT-televisions, fax, hubs, network systems, electrical and electronic cables, UPS large and small, remote controls and electronic games, telecommunication systems, VCR and DVDs, sound systems, industrial, testing and scientific electronic equipment, transformers, mechanical and electrical.

Advantages of Obtaining an EPR Certificate

Extended Producer’s Responsibility registration provides several advantages, including the ability to produce electronics and import electronic waste:¬†The EPR issuing Authority specifies how e-waste should be handled. It will have a less detrimental environmental influence on our environment.

Preventing Plastic Pollution

Plastic garbage EPR registration can help to reduce plastic pollution. If plastic is the principal raw material in your product, an EPR certificate for plastic waste is required.
Developing Renewable Products
It’s not only the director. It is also a product. The EPR product¬†responsibility encourages you to create a better product with renewable resources. The EPR certificate, like the BIS certificate, establishes manufacturing norms. As a result, both BIS and EPR certifications are equally relevant.
