What is “E-Waste”?

As per the E-waste (Management) Rules, 2016, 'E-waste' means electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part discarded as waste by the consumer or bulk consumer as well as rejects from manufacturing, refurbishment and repair processes.

Electronics such as refrigerators, washing machines, mobile phones, computers, laptops, printers, fax machines or even their parts, which have reached the end of their useful life are called “E-Waste”. If not recycled in an environmentally sound way, e-waste poses a range of environmental risks.

Where and how can you learn more about your E-Waste?

For any queries related to e-waste management, please reach out to Karo Sambhav at
[email protected]. You can also call Karo Sambhav’s toll-free number at 1800 2121 434.

Important Dos and Don’ts

  • As our valued customer, we encourage you to channelise your e-waste only through the collection channels set up by Karo Sambhav.
  • Do not mix e-waste in your home dustbins with other municipal waste.
  • Do not dismantle any electronics/ electrical devices at home. Improper dismantling or recycling of e-waste is harmful for the environment.
  • Do not sell the e-waste to any unauthorised agencies/scrap dealer/informal waste collector.
  • Keep the product in isolated area, after it becomes non-functional/un-repairable so as to prevent its accidental breakage.

Collection Channels of Karo Sambhav

The PRO is setting up channels for collection of e-waste across India. The collected e-waste is channelized by the PRO through its Logistics Service Providers (LSPs) to authorized recyclers.

Karo Sambhav’s overall collection scheme focuses on the below programmes:

Bulk Consumer Programme

The objective of the Bulk Consumer Programme is to provide a responsible E-waste management solution to bulk consumers in India. The Programme serves the E-waste management needs of offices, government institutions, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, retailers, banks or any other organizations.

If you are a bulk consumer, please reach out to our Karo Sambhav at [email protected] for responsible management of your e-waste or call Karo Sambhav’s toll-free number 18002121434.

Informal Waste Collector Programme

The waste collector programme focuses on engaging with informal sector waste pickers and aggregators by integrating them in the formal economy.

By being a part of the programme, waste pickers and waste aggregators become a collection channel of the PRO and bring transparency to their processes.

Collection Centres and Collection Points for Individuals

Karo Sambhav has set up collection centres and collection points where individuals can dispose-off their e-waste. Karo Sambhav manages this e-waste at no charge to consumers for recycling their products.
