The electronics waste (e-waste) comprises of discarded electrical and electronic equipment, and poses serious challenges globally for improper disposal practices especially in informal sector.

Hon’ble PM has emphasized the need for creating awareness for environmental issues under “Swach Digital Bharat’ during his address at NASSCOM event on 01.03.2015. On the direction of Hon’ble PM, MeitY has initiated the “Awareness Programme on Environmental Hazards of Electronic Waste through Digital India Initiative” over a period of five years to create awareness among the public about the hazards of e-waste recycling by the informal sector and educate them about alternate methods of disposing their e-waste.

Over 95 per cent of e-waste generated is managed by the informal sector. Integration of the informal sector and access to environmentally safe recycling technologies may reduce the health and environmental hazards. In addition to technology, capacity building, skill management, scientific recycling mechanism, business management training are also required for safe recycling of e-waste.

In this context, MeitY is inviting citizen inputs to provide solution for leakage of E-Waste in the informal sector, and suggest proper recycling technology for E-Waste that is economically available.

The last date of submission of suggestions is 4th April, 2018.

• Behaviour change communication for consumers. Environmental considerations take precedence over monetary returns.
• Stop auction of e-waste by institutional/ bulk users/ government departments. High bid price is a red flag.
• Make it mandatory for bulk consumers to channel e-waste only to producers.
• Robust authorization process for e-waste recyclers.
• Higher accountability on SPCBs for clamping down on unauthorized recyclers.
• Online processes to prevent paper trading of e-waste

Use plastic in road construction (highway construction). Make it mandatory for road construction companies to coordinate with Municipal Corporations to collect plastic and use it in road construction. Put these conditions in Government road Contracts or tenders itself. Disqualify the companies if they are not adhering the rule of using particular amount of plastic in road construction. Let private companies decide from where they will bring the plastic to use in road construction.

इलेक्ट्रॉनिक वेस्ट को रोकने तथा उनका संग्रहण करने के लिए कुछ तकनीक और आईडिया अपनाने की आवश्यकता है मैंने अपने सबमिशन में ऐसे ही कुछ तकनीक दिए हैं जिससे लोगों को सरल ढंग से ई वेस्ट को अपने नजदीकी संग्रहण क्षेत्रों में जमा करने में आसानी होगी लोगों को प्रोत्साहन मिलेगा तथा यह कार्य नागरिकों के साथ-साथ उद्योगों को भी खाने की आवश्यकता है जिसमें उन्हें ई वेस्ट का पुनर्चक्रण पर बल देना है जो व्यक्ति या संस्था से कार्य में लापरवाही बरतेंगे उन्हें प्रतिबंधित भी करने का प्रावधान होना चाहिए|
