Recycling, a new life to the e-waste

HUAWEI is committed to waste reduction, recycling, and reuse. We recycle them, dismantle them and extract resources to maximize the recycled e-waste. It all takes a little bit of your effort.

  • Data Security

    HUAWEI’s recycling partners will completely demagnetize, erase, and physically destroy the storage media in the e-waste to prevent your personal data from being disclosed.

    * Tips: Before putting your e-waste into the recycling bin, back up and delete your personal data. HUAWEI and its recycling partners are not responsible for the loss of any files or data.

  • Professional Disassembly

    HUAWEI’s recycling partners have obtained ISO9001 and ISO14001 certifications. The disassembly process complies with national laws and regulations.

  • Eco Processing

    Recycled e-waste will be eco processed, raw materials are separated from them, such as copper, cobalt salt/iron, aluminum, copper sand, resin powder, and plastic, which will finally be reused in manufacturing new electronics or other products.

HUAWEI TELECOMMUNICATIONS (INDIA) CO. PRIVATE LIMITED E-WASTE MANAGEMENT POLICY

The Information and Communication revolution has brought enormous changes in the way we organize our lives, our economies, industries and institutions. These spectacular developments in modern times have undoubtedly enhanced the quality of our lives, but at the same time, have led to manifold problems including the problem of massive amount of hazardous waste and other waste generated from electric products. Such waste poses a serious threat to human health and environment. The issue of 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, E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2016, as amended by E-waste (Management) Amendment Rules, 2018 were published by the government of India, in the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate change.

HUAWEI TELECOMMUNICATIONS (INDIA) CO. PRIVATE LIMITED STANDS COMMITTED TO IMPLEMENT THE E-WASTE RULES.

The Basel Convention defines wastes 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.”
Whereas, Electrical and electronic equipment has been defined as "Equipment which is dependent on electrical currents or electro-magnetic fields to fully functional".
Like hazardous waste, the problem of e-waste has become an immediate and long-term concern as its unregulated accumulation and recycling can lead to major environmental problems endangering human health. This calls for an urgent need for E-Waste Management so as to preserve the ecological balance and reduce landfills. Recycling end-of-life products is vital if we are to save resources and minimize waste.

Why Recycle.

Conserve Resources
Creation requires raw resources. But when we recycle, extant material is put to use. Recycling saves this extraction of the fresh raw resources, and revives the existing ones that are no longer of use. This way there is lesser exploitation and more conservation of natural resources.


Save Energy
Each time we recycle a product, it requires lesser energy than producing a new one from the scratch. The considerable difference in manufacturing time is a result of skipping the usual process of extraction of raw material, its transportation, refining etc., which is way more than having a market ready product that to have a raw material ready for production.


Prevent Pollution
Production and disposal of products require a great deal of extraction, refining, processing and dumping of material, which have larger impact on the environment. By recycling, we cut down the pollution of air, water and land, thus reducing the greenhouse gas emission and avoiding any contribution to global warming.


Don'ts for E- Waste
• The product should not be opened/dismantled by the User himself/herself, but only by authorized service personnel.
• The product is not meant for re-sale to any unauthorized agencies/scrap dealer
• The product is not meant for mixing into household waste stream.
• Do not keep any replaced spare part(s) from the product in exposed area
