Ecoreco’s ‘Environment Friendly-Customer First’ approach
E-waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the world because; consumption of electronic equipment has direct relation with our socio-economic development, change in technology, fashion & style. If we further add, the growing demands for Digital India, Smart Cities, E-commerce, M-commerce etc., the consumption of electronic gadgets is expected to touch to $ 400 billion (INR 25 lakh Crores) by 2020 (as per Deity).
As one of the world’s fastest developing nations, India is going to witness a fast increasing load of e-waste, originating from both household consumption and enterprises over and above illegal imports and these put together expected to grow to 15 million MT by 2020 from 3.2 million MT in 2015 consisting of monetary value of recoveries of $ 4 billion (INR 25,000 Crores) and expected to touch to $ 20 billion (INR 125,000 Crores) by 2020.
The above growth comes with greater responsibility of protecting ecology & environment, Ecoreco is proud to have served more than 1000 corporate customers since 2005 comprising of multinational companies, Indian business houses, bulk consumers, BFSI Companies etc. who really believes in the same philosophy with which Eco Recycling Ltd was born to serve.

Ecoreco has established market leadership through its innovative ideas, pan-India reach, on-site services and seamless movement of e-waste from the door step of the client to the last ritual of the hazardous waste and that is the reason why customer says “Ecoreco Karwana Hai” (a synonym to e-waste recycling).
Ecoreco’s network of Take Back, Training & Treatment Points
Since its inception, Ecoreco has conceptualized and implemented various innovative business models whereby the Indian e-waste industry has discovered value. We were the first Indian company to set up a state-of-the-art recycling plant and make believe logistics companies that ‘we can also do reverse logistic’.
Now the time has come to widen Ecoreco’s network by establishing its own Reverse Logistic Points which will be run by the Trained & Certified Partners and setting up of Pre-processing Points at various locations across India.
With India generating over 3 million metric tonnes of e-waste and over 90% is being handled by the unorganized sector, Ecoreco has chalked out a plan to integrate these experienced Kabadies in its network of collection & dismantling activities to share benefit of this untapped opportunity and at the same time protecting their livelihood and environment.
