Recycle with joy at HMD Mobile India Private Limited

At HMD Mobile India Private Limited (HMD), we are committed to responsible recycling of our end-of-life products. To enable this, we have joined hands with a CPCB authorised Producer Responsibility Organisation (PRO), Karo Sambhav Private Limited (Authorisation No.: B-29016(6)/PRO/18/WM-III dated 29-08-2018), to fulfil our Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) compliance. For more information on our PRO, please visit www.karosambhav.com.

We urge you to join our cohesive e-waste movement, the details of which are below.

What is "E-Waste"?

As per the E-waste (Management) Rules, 2016, 'E-waste' means electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part discarded as waste by the consumer or bulk consumer as well as rejects from manufacturing, refurbishment and repair processes.

Electronics such as mobile phones, TVs, laptops, printers, fax machines or even their parts, which have reached the end of their useful life are called “E-Waste”. If not recycled in an environmentally sound way, e-waste poses a range of environmental risks.

Where and how can you recycle your e-waste?

For any queries related to e-waste management, please reach out to Karo Sambhav at engage@karosambhav.com. You can also call Karo Sambhav’s toll-free number at 1800 2121 434.

Important Do’s and Don’ts

• As our valued customer, we encourage you to channelise your e-waste through the collection channels set up by Karo Sambhav. • Do not mix e-waste in your home dustbins with other municipal waste.
• Do not dismantle any electronics/ electrical devices at home. Improper dismantling or recycling of e-waste is harmful for the environment.
• Do not sell the e-waste to any unauthorised agencies/scrap dealer/informal waste collector.
• Keep the product in isolated area, after it becomes non-functional/un-repairable, so as to prevent its accidental breakage.

School Programme: Awareness

HMD has joined the PRO - Karo Sambhav – which is running its School Programme, designed to create awareness on critical environmental issues including waste from electronics. It is engaging students on preventive environmental strategies like circular economy and inspiring them to take actions in their daily lives. The programme is designed to create an environmental movement in schools with teachers playing a leading role, spread over 4-6 months.

The programme enables development of 21st century skills of collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, communication, ICT competencies and real-world problem solving, by deploying contemporary pedagogical practices in the classroom.

Going beyond just recycling

Our PRO has set-up a range of programmes for collection of e-waste. These programmes also help generate, livelihood and formalise the informal sector in the e-waste management chain.

Bulk Consumer Programme

The objective of the Bulk Consumer Programme is to provide a responsible E-waste management solution to bulk consumers in India. The programme serves the E-waste management needs of offices, government institutions, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, retailers, banks or any other organizations. If you are a bulk consumer, please reach out to Karo Sambhav at engage@krosambhav.com or call Karo Sambhav’s toll-free number 18002121434, for responsible management of your e-waste.

Waste Collector Programme

The waste collector programme focuses on formalizing the waste pickers and aggregators. By being a part of the programme, waste pickers and waste aggregators become a collection channel of the PRO and bring transparency to their processes.

Residential Welfare Associations (RWAs) Programme

The objective of the Residential Welfare Associations (RWAs) Programme is to establish collection channels and provide a responsible E-waste management solution to the individual consumers in urban areas of India. The programme serves the E-waste management needs of Residents of Apartment Complexes and Residential Welfare Associations, wherein collection drives are held, and consumers are educated on issues related to e-waste.

Collection Network

1.1. Collection Centres Network

Karo Sambhav is setting-up collection centres across India to enable the collection, storage and movement of the e-waste from across the country. These collection centres enable collection from formalized waste collectors and aggregators, bulk consumers, RWAs and multiple other collection channels created by Karo Sambhav.

1.2. Collection Points Network

In addition to the Collection Centres, and in order to increase state coverage, the PRO has set up collection points across the country. Individual consumers can walk into the collection point where they can dispose-off their E-waste in the e-bin placed at the location for recycling their products at no charge.
