Waste Management Programme
Recycle India focuses on responsibly managing harmful E-Waste and plastic waste through various initiatives. For E-Waste, the organisation purchases old electronics, collaborates with rag pickers, and sends reusable materials to relevant companies for extended use. The remaining E-waste is collected and processed for recycling. Similarly, Recycle India collects plastic waste from multiple sources, particularly rag pickers, sorts reusable plastics for recycling, and promotes reuse where possible to reduce disposal needs. The organisation actively contributes to the proper disposal and recycling of these materials for a healthier environment.
Social Responsibility & Management Programme
Recycle India is actively engaged in promoting social responsibility and effective waste management practices. The organisation emphasizes the concept of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), which involves incorporating the full environmental costs of a product's lifecycle into its market price. EPR encourages manufacturers to adopt environmentally friendly product designs and holds them accountable for managing their products at the end of their useful life. This strategy aims to increase product recovery rates, minimize waste's environmental impact, and promote sustainable practices. EPR not only incentivizes manufacturers to prioritize eco-friendly approaches but also shifts the burden of recycling costs from local Governments to producers, thereby fostering a more responsible and sustainable waste management system.
