Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment - is the term used to describe old, end-of-life or discarded appliances using electricity. It includes computers, consumer electronics, fridges etc which have been disposed of by their original users
With so many nations of the world driving on the road to economic development and technology ever advancing, the search for solutions to the e-waste problem is a multi-faceted endeavour. E-waste is a term used to cover almost all types of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). The challenges in dealing with this type of waste continue to multiply simply because the market for such products just keeps expanding as countries cross the so-called ‘digital divide’.
The Solving the E-waste Problem (StEP) Initiative is well positioned to make a difference towards the development and practical implementation of sustainable solutions. we focus on the development of replicable and sustainable re-use/refurbishment/spare parts development systems in order to minimize environmental, health and safety impacts — especially in industrializing countries. WorthIT supports the development of globally consistent re-use practices, principles and standards for EEE products from business-to-business and business-to-consumer users that are economically, socially and environmentally appropriate.
Re-use is a key part of the e-waste solutions toolkit. Its prominence in discussions can be explained as a response to the shortening of product lifespans that is leading to greater pressure on resource extraction and increased manufacturing burdens and to the burgeoning quantities of e-waste.
The concept of re-use should therefore be viewed as being largely reactionary to the trend of products being disposed of much earlier than necessary and is about the optimization of the use phase. Re-use, then, is not a solution to the e-waste problem in its own right but seen as a means of alleviating, or moderating, the existing problems until such a time that products are utilized to a much more optimal level before being recycled in the most efficient means possible.
However, the practice of electronics re-use also happens to generate another wide range of ancillary benefits. These range from providing employment and training opportunities for people with disabilities or the long-term unemployed to providing access to good equipment for people with low income, helping to bridge the digital divide. It is also a major source of IT equipment for businesses and educational establishments in the developing world resulting in the promotion of vital economic development. Reuse also plays a significant role in the provision of spare parts for longlife and high-value equipment where the manufacturing of new parts may be rather expensive. The renewed focus on the availability of certain critical materials further strengthens the logic for considering re-use as a part of a business strategy.
We at worthit get products from corporates and companies who wouldn’t have used the products to ils full life term and then wish to dispose off for brand new latest configurations.
Our inhouse certified engineers will first validate if the products are viable for reconditioning and if the products meets our crieteria then these products are cleaned, repaired, and checked for quality before it is sent for despatch.
By refurbishing we not only save the cost of our customers but also save the environment which is the need of hour.
With this division, madhu infotech india pvt ltd., is trying to do its bit to save our mother earth.
Instead of destroying carton boxes that arrive from the manufacturer and packaging it with our own branded boxes, we believe in providing it an extended life. The packaging is repeatedly recovered, inspected, repaired and reissued into the supply chain for reuse.
We tell our customers about the return, recovery and collection facilities available for returning of the packaging boxes. Hence making them aware of our environment friendly approach towards the society.
Reusable packaging offers a wide range of economic, social and environmental benefits over single-use packaging at all levels of the supply chain.
Reduces overall packaging costs
Rapid return on investment (ROI)
Reduces inventory, requires less space
Residual value at the end of its service life
Prevents waste from entering the solid waste stream
Reduces greenhouse gas emissions
Supports source reduction
Requires less energy
We take pride in calling ourselves as responsible refurbisher and partnered recycler who cares for environment.
We have take back services pan India, our partners across India act as take back agents who collects all the IT products and electronics which are working or non-working.
These products are transported to our facility and then evaluated for further process and will undergo any of the following
If the product is in good condition or with minor repairs and if it can be used for min of 1 more year then the product will go the refurbishing division, were products will be refurbished and put for re use.
If the product is not functioning and few components are working then, components are pulled out, tested for functionality and put for re use. Remaining parts are sent for safe disposal.
Product which are not working or not fit to re-use are being sent to recyclers who are registered with MOEF/CPCB as recyclers/reprocesses having environmentally sound management facilities.
