The Rules have introduced stringent annual E-waste recycling targets that PIBOs are mandated to achieve. These targets are a pivotal force in diverting electronic waste away from landfills and advancing the cause of responsible recycling.
PIBOs bear the vital responsibility of ensuring that electronic waste is disposed of in a manner that aligns with environmentally sound practices. This commitment to safe disposal not only mitigates potential harm to the environment but also safeguards public health, setting the stage for a more sustainable future.
Many electronic products harbor hazardous components, including batteries and specific chemicals. It is incumbent upon PIBOs to oversee the proper handling and disposal of these potentially harmful materials. By doing so, they play a pivotal role in reducing risks and environmental impact.
