How India is Handling Electronics Recycling in 2012: Part 2
In regards to what makes India so efficient while handling E-waste, the reasons lie in what is made available through various disposal facilities located throughout India. These facilities are designed to handle computers, cell phones and other electronic components deemed unsafe for traditional landfills. The top three companies offering this type of safe disposal for 2012, include E-Parisaraa, Earth Sense Recycle and Trishyiraya Recycling. The main purpose of using special E-waste facilities for disposal of electronics is to prevent the hazardous material they emit from getting into the region’s water supply where it can cause health problems for the population.
E-Parisaraa has a recycling facility located in the industrial area in Dabaspet and in the rural region of Bangalore. The services offered by this company include inspection of collected items as well as the disposal of products upon request. When someone requests to have their computer destroyed, the company offers secure data destruction for all of the information contained on the hard drives. The secure data destruction is also used when recycling computers for additional use.
Earth Sense Recycling offers secure disposal of electronics as well as the safe disposal of waste classified as bio-medical material. This company began its recycling efforts in 2000 by accepting used up or old electronic components such as floppy disks, used toner cartridges, CDs and batteries.
