Wondering what happens with your old and obsolete electronics?
Technology has made our lives simple. For every job in the house or office, we have a gadget to make work easy and fast. But what happens when these gadgets and electronic items become old and obsolete. They are either discarded or kept in the junkyard. Have you ever thought how these can be discarded?
Though it has helped us to solve many real world problems in the most efficient way nonetheless it has turned out to be one of the biggest problems when it comes to disposal over the years.
All these disposed computers, office electronic equipments, entertainment devices, household electronics, mobile phones, television sets, refrigerators and many other tech devices turn into electronic waste or commonly called as e-waste.
In 2016, India was ranked as the fifth largest generator of electronic waste in the world. A study conducted The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India(ASSOCHAM) and KPMG in 2016 ranked India among one of the top five countries in e-waste generation.
What can be done with e-waste?
Whenever we buy a new smart phone, laptop or a camera, we never think about our old devices that what should be the right way to dispose them without causing harm to the environment. Discarding an old device improperly has a serious effect on the environment and on human life as well. These devices contain various semiconductors or elements that consist of hazardous chemicals like lead, cadmium and beryllium. Hence, before you dispose your old device, think of the impact it would create and how many lives it will endanger.
Companies like BRP Infotech help e-waste recycling in Delhi. They are equipped with advanced facilities for extracting reusable resources from electronic waste under the control of its highly experienced staff who pay utmost attention to ensure that all the recycling jobs are performed in an eco-friendly way. These companies also manage computer recycling in Delhi for households and commercial units looking to discard their obsolete computer systems.
They collect e-waste from the various generators of the e-waste, transport them to their warehouse. Then from there it is shifted to their facility where e-waste undergoes segregation and recycling with environment safe measures.
Improper electronic recycling and disposal can harm the environment
Environmental associations assert that incorrect managing of electronic waste in developing countries is the principle cause of serious health and pollution issues.E-waste when destroyed or recycled improperly can cause extreme environmental pollution and unfavourable effect on the human body as they include too many poisonous chemicals like mercury, polybrominated flame retardants, barium, lithium and PVC. The typical process of burning of e-waste in unconventional e-waste recycling and disposal facilities discharges toxic gases into the atmosphere, leading to air pollution. Imperfect recycling methods and insignificant disposal of e-waste cause a lot of pollutants such as cadmium, lead and other endless organic pollutants to be released into the atmosphere, which also pollute the ecosystem and cause health risks.
The system of dumping of e-waste into landfills as resulting in informal e-waste recycling ultimately makes the hazardous and toxic segments of e-waste percolate into the ecosystem.
Why give your e-waste to recycling units?
E-waste management has become one of the primary concerns as the ever-increasing number of devices that human life has to rely on is increasing day by day, making it highly essential to manage e-waste in a sustainable and greener way. E-waste recycling companies expertise in necessary processes for e-waste management and disposal in a globally acceptable manner. They specialise in comprehensive and eco-friendly recycling services as well as end-to-end e-waste recycling and metal extraction solution.
By adopting various technological advancements, these units extract various recoverable materials like aluminium, copper, gold, silver, plastics, and ferrous metals that are included in the e-waste. These natural resources go waste if they are merely dumped in a landfill or destroyed by burning it. Instead they can be recycled and reused by extracting them from such e-waste. This will save energy, resources and reduce pollution too.
Be responsible and hand over your e-waste to these recycling companies. This way you can save Mother Earth and contribute towards making this world a better place.
