What makes e-waste so bad?
What is the way out and what do the rules say?
Following are the ways by which you can hand over your E-waste to the authorized recyclers
1. Samadhaan Hub at Sector 43, Gurgaon: It is a drop-off point/collection center managed by I Am Gurgaon NGO in association with City Municipality. There are drop boxes for other kinds of waste too. One may go and drop off smaller items like batteries, bulbs, tube lights, wires, CDs, old mobile phones, keyboards, etc. For bigger items check point number 2.

What are the different ways to dispose of other unwanted items?
We all have stuff that we don’t need anymore and that has been lying there without any use. It can range from clothing items to furniture, to utensils and toys. Some people just throw it off, but, there are several ways to find a new home or place for things you no longer require.
2.Donate: There are many charitable organizations that are in need of basic things like clothing, stationery, and furniture. You can help them by donating your pre-loved belongings. However, always ensure that all the items are in good usable condition only and not scrap.
