Recycle gadgets with responsibility for a green planet
In this day and age, newer gadgets and technology keep mushrooming every day to make our lives easy. However, such a rising e-trend has given rise to grave situation. Electronic waste, popularly known as ‘e-waste’encompasses ever growing range of obsolete electronic devices such as computers and its peripherals, TVs & display devices, telecommunication devices such as cellular phones, audio and video devices besides refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, and microwave ovens. The list is endless and so are the troubles that come along with it. This is taking a toll on our landfills as most of the gadgets hit the e-waste fills before even serving a part of their estimated life span. As residents of this planet we need to take the responsibility of managing our waste in appropriate manner. By encouraging the three Rs, that is ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’, we can minimize the negative environmental aspects of disposal. WasteCare offers a unique recycling and waste management service that enables waste producers from all industrial and business sectors to manage and report their waste, from collection to recovery regardless of the type, volume or location.
