PhonePe Pvt Ltd E-Waste Recycling Policy
Modern technology has undoubtedly enhanced the quality of our lives, but at the same time, has led to manifold problems including the problem of massive amounts of electronic waste. Such waste poses a serious threat to human health and environment. The proper management of such hazardous e-waste is therefore critical to the protection of livelihood, health and environment.
To deal with this ever-rising problem of E-Waste, the Government of India, through its Ministry of Environment and Forest, formulated the E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules in 2016.
PhonePe Pvt Ltd stands committed to implement the E-Waste rules
The Basel Convention defines ‘waste’ as
“Substances or objects, which are disposed off or are intended to be disposed off or are required to be disposed off by the provisions of national laws”.
‘e-waste’ has been defined as
“Waste electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part or rejects from their manufacturing and repair process, which are intended to be discarded.”
‘Electrical and electronic equipment’
Whereas, has been defined as "Equipment which is dependent on electrical currents or electro-magnetic fields to fully functional".
