With today’s technology becoming obsolete tomorrow, we end up changing our mobile phones like we change our clothes. So you can imagine the amount of e-waste that gets generated by such consumerism. At Videocon, being socially and environmentally responsible, we couldn’t turn a blind eye to this situation. That’s why ‘V RECYCLE’.
V RECYCLE means more than just we recycle. Of course, it is an initiative by Videocon where we recycle your old and no longer useful phones. But it is also much more than that.
Our endeavour is to make recycling second nature for people. For us, recycling the mobile is a small step towards making recycling part of your life. It is a beginning, not an end. Therefore, we urge you to please come forward and join us in this initiative. All you have to do is drop your unwanted mobile phone at any of our collection centres. So, are you ready to recycle?
What forms e-wastes?
Old computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, fax machines, electric lamps, audio equipment, batteries and even mobile phones can form e-waste. Basically it is any electronic product that has ended its useful life. When abandoned in large numbers, they can pollute and pose a threat to the environment. An estimated 50 million tons of e-waste are produced each year!
How harmful is e-waste?
E-wastes are considered dangerous, as certain components of some electronic products contain materials that are hazardous, depending on their condition and density. If improperly disposed, they can leach lead and other harmful substances into soil and groundwater.
How exactly do we recycle?
We probe the so called ‘no longer useful phones’ and extract parts that contribute to assembling a new product. Recycling these articles can help reduce pollution drastically. Also, we make sure that the useless parts are disposed of well so that they pollute the least.
