Why you should not sell Electronic Waste as the usual RADDI (waste).

We all have Raddi or the waste paper and items in our house which we collect and dispose it off to the raddiwala or the kabadiwala who knocks our door every Sunday without fail. Haggling over the price every time, our egos feel good to have garnered the best bargain. The raddiwala makes a living selling it to the scrap dealers who in turn send the paper, cardboard and metal for recycling and reuse.

However there is a caveat. If your raddi or waste isn’t the usual paper, card board, plastic or metal then you should be a little careful. Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipement such as your discarded mobiles, computer peripherals, terminals and monitors, your old television set, remote controls, florescent tubes, air-conditioner, geysers and refrigerators amongst others need special handling in terms of collection, disposal and to recycle and reuse it.

WEEE or E-Waste as it is technically known has to be processed scientifically which the usual scarp dealers are ill equipped to do so. With their crude and unscientific methods not only they put themselves and their workers at great peril but also throw it at places making our earth and environment polluted. The untrained and unorganized scrap dealers or the kabadiwalas resort to burning the circuit board, acid stripping, cable burning in open, CRT cracking & dumping. These waste electronic and electrical equipment contain toxic and carcinogenic elements with immense potential to get back to us through water and air. E-Wastes contain Lead, Mercury, Cadmium and flame retardants that cause multiple toxic problems.

ZeroWaste as an authorized e-waste collector has meticulously put in place scientific process which collects and sends to authorized e-waste handlers to be efficiently reused and recycled and even disposed off causing the least damage to our environment. It not only very responsibly manages the process but also offers the customers great prices for your equipment.

Zero Waste Process — The responsible way.

So next time you would like to sell the discarded electronic and electrical equipment sell it to ZeroWaste and be responsible and do your part in saving our precious environment and earth.

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.
