Recycle your e-waste formally because it secures many people’s livelihood not just one; your scrap vendor! Namo E-Waste, as part of the formal and organized e-waste sector, is contributing to India’s economy and generating employment for a large set of people.
According to IFC (International Finance Corporation) the e-waste sector in India will generate 4.5 lakh direct job opportunities by 2025. That is the kind of potential the sector holds. Namo E-Waste with the support of the Indian government is efficiently managing the country’s e-waste, employing skilled labour and professionals. The best e-waste company in India aims to reach out to 70% of India’s e-waste generating sources. Many trained technicians and skilled professionals from government run polytechnics and ITIs are finding job opportunities in the e-waste management companies like Namo E-waste.
With the rise in the usage of electronic and digital devices, there has been an increase in the e-waste production as well. The formal e-waste management companies like Namo E-Waste employ the scientific method of collection, segregation and recycling of e-waste. The collected e-waste is passed through multiple levels of sorting, extraction, separation, purification and making it recycle-ready. All this is done by skilled man-power. Namo E-Waste is doing all it takes to create more employment opportunities for people of India.
The company also conducts many activities to create awareness among people regarding formal methods of disposing of e-waste. The current linear model of make, sell, use then dispose generates hazardous e-waste that contaminates our environment making all of us prone to illness. Not only the generation of e-waste must be minimized as much as possible but also the life of electronic and electrical devices must be so designed as to last longer. Conducting Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) exercises to create awareness and disposing of e-waste at home, office and community levels also require manpower.
Informal methods of recycling e-waste prevalent in urban areas with high density of population do not have multiple divisions to employ more people. Not to mention the harm these informal recyclers cause to the people by intermingling in community and residential areas. As per a research, lead recyclers operate out of Mustafabad in New Delhi. Gold recovery and recycling takes place in Meerut. Recharging of cathode ray tubes happens in the Shastri Park area of New Delhi. All these units lack labour standards and environmental protection. They are risking their and other’s lives in creating livelihood for a few. If these recyclers are educated regarding the dangers of informal recycling and trained they can contribute their services in the formal sector enabling a safe environment for all.
E-waste is definitely seen as a resource that, in case formally managed, can create employment opportunities, resurrect livelihoods, grant access to technology, enable transfer of skills and knowledge and facilitate technological upgrading. Above all it generates raw material and capital to design commodities out of recycled material. Together we must identify its potential and leverage it for a safer ecosystem providing bread and butter to many.
Namo E-waste with its electronic waste recycling plant in India, endeavours to create more green jobs and educate as many people as possible to help transitioning informal e-waste management to contribute to the formal economy and enable sustainable recycling systems.
