Deshwal Waste Management
In effect since 1st day of October, 2016 the government has provided an extended number of comprehensive guidelines that further explore the responsibilities of the corporate as well as the government sector and finally restricts their monopoly on all related operations in this domain.
The corporate sector is directed to share the onus on claiming responsibility and acting on it, on the subject of E-waste. The guidelines address this sector primarily as the bulk consumer of electrical and electronic equipment and hence a major generator of the electronic waste. They instruct the corporates to maintain records of the waste generated by them and make the same available for scrutiny by the State Pollution Control Board (SPCB).
They are further asked to ensure proper channelization of the electronic waste to appropriate collection centres, recyclers or dismantlers or through the designated take back service provider of the producer to authorised dismantler or recycler.
Annual returns are also expected to be filed by the companies falling under the said category (Schedule 1) to the State Pollution Control Board before 30th June of following financial year to which the return is filed. In case of multiple offices in a State, one annual return combining information from all the offices shall be filed to the concerned State Pollution Control Board.
The guidelines further instruct the sector to ensure that end of life electronic and electrical equipment is not mixed with E-waste containing radioactive materials as covered under Atomic Energy Act 1962.
All in all these guidelines just provide us an insight to the deep rooted problem regarding the problem of E-waste in our country. In fact some believe that they barely scratch the surface, thus it is essential for all stakeholders of the society to come together and not only uphold these given guidelines but generate and employ more. It is time for us to accept this responsibility, we at Deshwal have, it’s now time for you.
NGO & RAW's
It’s not easy to make your way to the garbage dump sites at Seelampur. People here have a deep-seated distrust of outsiders, particularly those from NGOs or the media. I pretend I am here to dispose of electronic devices. After an hour of wandering, I find a father-son duo willing to speak to me. The father introduces himself as Salim and is unwilling to disclose his real name. He says his son is named Ahmed. After tea and some exchange of trivia, they show me dismantled refrigerators, washing machines, computers, televisions, and mobiles tossed in the trash here. I also get to sneak a peek at their workshop, which doubles as their home, where e-waste is dismantled.
