With the increasing consumption of gadgets with latest technologies, discarding rate of electronic equipment is also increasing rapidly but whatever discarded, need not necessarily be an end of life only. There are chances that certain equipment and components still has useful life either without much of refurbishment or by repairing & upgrading and are good for redeployment at different consumer levels. Ecoreco prefers to salvage such equipment and components in the best interest of environment & ecology and remarket these items. It may not be out of place to mention that in spite of India’s dominance in technology sector, penetration level of computerisation is still in a single digit primarily because the cost of acquiring new electronic asset is not within the reach of every consumer. Ecoreco is of the view that refurbishment and remarketing should be promoted as much as possible thereby lower and middle income group can also have an access to electronic equipment and computer literacy ratio to the total population may be enhanced at an affordable costs.
With the kind of plans of Digital India and Smart Cities the present Central Government has, India will certainly need more and more people to adopt the change and bring the change, electronics will certainly play a greater role.
Ecoreco has a team of qualified engineers who takes care of salvaging & refurbishment of such assets. Ecoreco even organises E-waste Week every year in December and request corporates to donate their computers for refurbishment at Ecoreco for use by the underprivileged. Ecoreco has set up a computer lab at National Association for Blinds (NAB) in Mumbai, donated value to Cancer Patients Aid Association in Mumbai, Handicapped Association in Kolkata are a few such examples besides several schools and colleges.
