We at Croma, believe that it's our responsibility not only to help you with the latest gadgets, but also lend assistance when it comes to the old ones. Our e-waste disposal program - E-Care, is a small step towards a Brighter Every Day!
E-waste which is a major source of toxic elements like Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, etc. can prove to be quite dangerous if not disposed responsibly. Hence it is necessary that e-waste is not only handled safely, but is also handled by trained professionals else it could also prove to be fatal.
The e-waste collected by Croma is taken to a central location from where JustDispose collects all of it. JustDispose has a state-of-the-art recycling facility with equipments that handles e-waste segregation & disassembly in a scientific manner. All of the e-waste collected by them is treated as follows:
- Old and usable electronics are refurbished for boosting education and livelihood in rural areas
- Hazardous materials like lead, mercury, cadmium, etc. are shipped to government-run CHWT facility (Common Hazardous Waste Treatment) for safe and sound disposal in an environment friendly manner
We at Croma have tied up with e-waste disposal experts 'JustDispose' who are helping us with the disposal.
