What is E-Waste?

E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their “useful life”. Air conditioners, televisions, refrigerators, washing machines are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished or recycled.

E-waste has been one of the fastest growing waste streams in the world.

While e-waste contains valuable materials such as aluminium, copper, gold, palladium and silver, it also contains harmful substances like cadmium, lead and mercury.
In the absence of proper awareness, disposing e-waste into landfills results in the release of toxic emissions into the air, water and soil, posing serious health and environmental hazards.

The Advantages of Recycling Electronic Waste

Electronic waste contains hazardous but also valuable and scarce materials. Up to 60 elements can be found in complex electronics. Most electronic devices contain a variety of materials, including metals that can be recovered for future uses.

By dismantling and providing reuse possibilities, intact natural resources are conserved, and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is avoided. Additionally, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the manufacturing of new products.

Our Company’s commitment to quality has prevailed because we believe you deserve nothing but the best. The E-Waste Management Rules 2016 have been amended under the guidelines of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India. BPL stands committed towards implementing the E-Waste Management Rules.

We understand there is a need to encourage recycling of all useful and valuable materials from e-waste, so as to conserve the ever-depleting natural resources.
Recycling discarded end-of-life products is vital if we are to save resources and minimize landfills. BPL understands its responsibility and in this regards, we have tied-up with one of the leading and authorised e-waste recyclers for facilitating the disposal of electronic products for our customers.
