VOLTAS RECYCLING PROGRAM FOR E-WASTE

What is E-Waste:

Waste electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part or rejects from their manufacturing and repair process, which are intended to be discarded.

E-waste can be considered as a resource that contains useful material of economic benefit for recovery of plastics, iron, glass, aluminum, copper and precious metals such as silver, gold, platinum, and palladium and lead, cadmium, mercury etc.

The e-waste Rules apply to all electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) listed in Schedule 1 (this includes Air Conditioners) and put on market in India, including their components and consumables which are part of the product at the time of discarding.

SCHEDULE I consists of the following

Categories of Electrical and Electronic Equipments including their components, consumables, parts and spares covered under the E-waste (Management & Handling) Rules 2016.

Sr. No.

Categories of electrical and electronic equipment

E-waste (Management & Handling) Rules 2016 r/w E Waste Management Amendment Rules, 2018

The rules have been notified with primary objective to channelize the E-waste generated in the country for environmentally sound recycling which is largely controlled by the unorganized sector who are adopting crude practices that results into higher pollution and less recovery, thereby causing wastages of precious resources and damage to environment. The E-waste Rules place main responsibility of e-waste management on the producer of the electrical and electronic equipment by introducing the concept of “Extended Producer Responsibility”(EPR). Recycling of old electronic product is beneficial in following ways:

1.      There is need to encourage recycling of all useful and valuable material from e-waste so as to conserve the ever depleting natural resources. Recycling end-of-life products is vital if we are to save resources and minimize waste.

2.      Also scientific disposal of e-waste reduces the environment pollution. The correct disposal of old product will help prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and human health.

3.      Toxic material present in e-waste get mixed with earth, air, water etc and causes health issues.

4.      Oil & Gases which is present is some of e-waste like compressor and refrigeration systems causes environment pollution.

5.      Batteries contains highly hazardous element.

6.      Burning of rubber & Plastic in open area causes air pollution. Channel partners/Customers are urged to strictly follow the guidelines as per e-Waste rules as any failure on their part would invite penal action, which may attract imprisonment upto 5 years or with fine upto Rs. 1 Lakhs or both

Guidance on disposal:

In India, E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules 2016 r/w E Waste Management   Amendment Rules 2018 have been notified by the Central Government. Voltas stands committed to implement E-Waste Rules. Voltas has done tie-up with the government authorized e-waste PRO/ recycler for facilitating our Channel partners/customers to enable them to dispose of e-waste products after its end-of-life products (when a product is non-operational or non-repairable) and also defective spare parts and also assist Voltas in fulfilling E Waste /EPR Compliance.

In this process, the channel partners/customers need to get in touch with our Call Centre (18605994555/ 9650694555). Voltas works closely with all consumer durable supply chains including authorized service providers, distributors, merchandiser’s customers, and the recycling industry.

Channel partners/Consumers should contribute to resource conservation and prevent potential environmental problems by a simple action — the proper depositing of their old consumer durable products, its accessories or defective spares. E-waste is will be disposed off separately from the general waste stream via designated collection facilities identified by Voltas.

Recycling of Products:

Many customers might think that end-of-life products are worthless, but they still contain many reusable or recyclable materials. Let's see how all parts of old products could be recycled*.

1.      Metal components made of MS, copper, aluminiumetc used in our products can be recycled and re used helping us save the environment.

2.      Valuable metals are used as component materials for the circuit board and remotes. During the smelting process, valuable metals such as gold, silver, and copper can be retrieved from these electronic parts. The metals that are retrieved can be used for new electronic parts or can be sold separately on their own.

3.      Plastic materials are used for structural components such as the case and cover. The plastic materials that have been collected are recycled as energy resources after going through a heat recovery process. Alternatively, they can be used as a form of recycled plastic once they have been broken down and processed. Recycled plastic can be used to produce products such as traffic cones, plastic fencing, and car bumpers.

4.      Paper is the main component used in packaging. Paper can be recycled. It is then used as recycled paper or in products made of paper.

*The above usages are only suggestive and may not necessarily mean about the current usage

This initiative is the step towards 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 products and defective spare parts

In case of accidental breakage of consumer durable products like: AC / Refrigerator:

1.     Gas Leakage from compressor – open the window & doors to allow proper ventilation.

What will happen if the product is not properly handled and is given/sold to scrap dealer like any other ordinary scrap?

In case e-waste is sold to unauthorized dealers (Kabbadi), they don’t have scientific tools to recycle the products and therefore they are not authorized by the Pollution Control Board. In open area they burn the plastic parts, break the seal of parts which carries gases and try to extract metals. Such smoke and gases pollute the environment. Also hazardous residual are thrown in landfills which is dangerous for land, water, air and living beings.
