Toxic metals and chemicals can be found in consumer electronics such as televisions, computers, and DVD players.

These gadgets are safe to use in your home on a daily basis, but when discarded, they can leak heavy metals and other toxins into the environment under certain situations. Keep them out of the garbage to protect yourself and the environment.
Electronic devices that are covered
- There may be fees, so check around for the best value.
- Make sure the collector will accept your stuff by contacting them.
- Some collection sites are only open to inhabitants of the city or county.
- Contact your county’s solid waste office for suggestions if your county doesn’t have any listed collectors.
Anything with a circuit board can be recycled
Televisions and computer monitors must be recycled. They are unable to be disposed of in the trash.
The same goes for mercury-containing components and rechargeable batteries.
Speak with a recycler in your area. You can help by not throwing anything away that has a circuit board on it:
- Cell Phones
- DVD and VCR Players
- FAX Machines
Stop e-waste from becoming a problem.
- Make the most of your products by using them for as long as feasible. By purchasing a converter box or viewing a TV via satellite or cable, you can extend the life of your analog television.
- Donate your television to an electronics-accepting thrift store or give it away online through Craigslist or Freecycle.
Recycling schemes run by manufacturers
Several major computer and electronics manufacturers are providing consumers with recycling and reuse options for their branded devices. This is especially frequent with older computers and computer accessories (monitors, keyboards, mice, etc.).
What is Electronic Waste (E-Waste)?
EcoReco, India’s first E-Waste recycling company, is presenting this ground-breaking and game-changing solution to anyone looking for a sustainable way to serve oneself, society, and the country.
SERVICES FOR ELECTRONIC WASTE:
Recycling of E-waste
EcoReco’s WEEE Recycling plant handles the entire e-waste process, providing comprehensive environmental protection and maximizing the amount of reused material recovered from discarded electronic equipment.
Destruction of Data
EcoReco has built India’s first mobile shredding facility, which addresses clients’ data security concerns by destroying 100 percent confidential data at the client’s location (onsite).
Recycling of Lamps
EcoReco established a Lamp Recycling Facility in 2008, despite the fact that it is not a regulated sector. EcoReco’s Lamp Recycling on Wheels operation offers both on-site and off-site recycling services.
Logistics in reverse
EcoReco has a well-developed reverse logistics network that promotes formal e-waste recycling. We own a number of trucks and containers, as well as partnerships with a number of top logistics firms, to support our strategy of restoring basic minerals to specific industries without supporting additional mine closures.
Asset Management is the management of assets
EcoReco believes in repurposing abandoned components and equipment by employing environmentally beneficial methods. We have a team of certified engineers who are responsible for salvaging and restoring assets. Every year in December, Ecoreco hosts an E-waste week, during which we ask businesses to contribute computers for rehabilitation and distribution to the less fortunate.
Extended Producers Responsibility (EPR) and Environment Protection Responsibility (EPR) are two ways to express EPR (EPR).
