Maybe you’ve seen them, maybe you will soon.Spreading the word of responsible e-waste recycling are Raju, Pranay and team; the young heroes from the theater troupe. Passionate about our cause and doing their bit for a safe environment, the group is staging “nukkad nataks” (street plays) across Jaipur inviting the audience to join Zerowaste in our mission to make Rajasthan India’s first zero e-waste state.

We’ve realized that the biggest problem in e-waste disposal is the fact that no one really believes that they have any e-waste at home in the first place. Look around your house and the chances are that somewhere in some corner there are lots of discarded electronic items — great when they worked, forgotten when they don’t. Yet no one’s ready to let go. One fine day they’ll just end up on a rubbish heap or be sold off as scrap to someone not qualified to dispose them off properly. That’s where the e-waste problem begins.

Don’t store, don’t help add to e-waste. Be responsible and recycle it through someone qualified. Zerowaste is there to help you. Together we can make a difference.

And if you get a chance to see the nukkad natak do clap for the young actors who are working hard to make a difference to the world that we live in.

Happy recycling!!

2 things you should do when surrounded with E–Waste

The gradual but enormous variety and number of electronic and electrical gadgets that are being used in our daily lives have made our lives e-lives. Lives as e-lives cannot be thought without dependence on electronic appliances and applications anymore. Moreover the importance cannot be stressed any less of adopting better gadgets, with newer upgrades and features replace even the ones that have not outlived their utility as yet. The developing countries are besotted with increasing e-penetration into areas and segments hitherto not known to have had any penchant for technology. The developed world on the other hand adds newer versions of the gadgets. The rate at which the new technology replacing the not so old tech is indeed astonishing similarly developing countries play out as huge untapped markets for introduction in any form and at any stage technology.

While we are stuffing our homes and work places with Electronic and Electrical Equipments (EEE) we are faced with a strange conundrum. At the end of their lives or when we buy or are gifted with new gadgets we are surrounded with old, damaged, discarded, old version of our once very useful gadgets, now termed as E — waste or Waste Electronic and Electronic Equipments. What do we do with these left-over? Where do we dispose them off? Is there any agency which takes them in?

Well you need to just take these two steps when confronted with these questions:

  1. Collect: Collect and segregate the E-wastes that you have in your homes and offices in to various categories like old & damaged.
  2. Contact: Get in touch with an authorized e-waste handler which offers to dispose off the e-waste in eco friendly manner and is in accordance with the laws.

Zero Waste is an efficient and authorized e-waste handler which not only takes up the challenge of assimilating in the present system all our e-wastes through refurbishing, re-use and recycle and also collaborates with other authorized e-waste handlers for their dismantling and landfill processes.

Another very important reason for you to contact Zero Waste is that it offers the best price possible for all the e-waste that you hand it over. The company also offers smart exchange options at select electronics outlets in Jaipur.

This way you not only earn on the e-waste but also become a responsible citizen.

Zerowaste-India’s simplest way to dispose e-waste now in Jaipur!

Jaipur takes a big stride in combating India’s growing problem of e-waste with the launch of Zerowaste in the Pink City.

Following our launch in Ajmer just a couple of months ago, we’re proud to carry our message of responsible e-waste disposal to the citizens of Rajasthan’s capital.

15 franchisees (collection centers) have joined the movement and more are on the way. For anyone interested in responsible disposal of their obsolete, unusable, discarded electronic items all you have to do is drop in at any collection center and exchange your item for cash and some very in exciting discount coupons.

We’ve also launched an innovative way to collect e-waste — ZeroWaste on Wheels — India’s first e-waste collection center on wheels. The Zerowaste mini van with its distinctive green branding covers all of Jaipur twice a week, collecting e-waste from locations in major residential & commercial areas.

Look out for the route map and timings of the van that we announce at www.zerowaste.co.in and choose a location that’s convenient.

Remember, disposing e-waste responsibly begins with a choice. You choose to act responsibly. We’ll show you the way. Contact us and we’ll do the rest.

Choose. Act. Spread the word. Together let’s fight for a cleaner planet.
