Lava's Initiatives for E-Waste Management

E-waste or electronic waste is created when an electronic product is discarded after the end of its useful life. The rapid expansion of technology means we are creating a very large amount of e-waste every passing minute. Discarding e-waste is harder than municipal waste due to a wide variety of metals and chemicals used during the manufacturing process. While some of these components can be recycled and reused, other toxic elements need careful disposal.

At Lava Mobiles, we take our social and environmental responsibilities very seriously and have come up with initiatives for responsible disposal of e-waste as per the Government of India’s E-waste (Management) Rules, 2016.

Lava E-Waste Recycling Programme

Under this program, Lava Mobiles strives to implement a shared responsibility for e-waste disposal amongst its equipment vendors, franchise holders and customers. We have partnered with 3R Recycler – India’s leading electronic asset management and Disposal Company to facilitate environment friendly disposal for end of life electronics.

Here we are sharing some steps you can take to join hands with us and make the dream of a pollution free world possible,

  • Every electronic equipment has an end-of-life handling and instructions guide. Search for them online if you no longer have access to the documentation that came with your device. At Lava, we maintain proper catalogues for each and every electronic component manufactured by us. You can contact us to know more about the proper disposal of your Lava smartphone, tablet or mobile accessory.
  • When selecting a third-party e-waste disposal agency, ensure that they are authorized recyclers/dismantlers such as 3R Recycler. You can simply drop off your mobile, battery, or accessory for disposal, at the nearest Lava Collection Point.
  • Always separate the packaging from the product for safe disposal of e-waste.
  • Ensure that broken devices, such as smartphones with shattered screens are not put in the e-waste disposal bins as they can cause physical injury to a handler.
  • Do not throw e-waste with municipal waste as it may end up reaching a landfill.
  • Last but not the least, do not dismantle/destroy an electronic product yourself as it may cause damage to property and life.

We hope that this guide is helpful and you will also take up a responsible approach towards the disposal of e-waste. It is not only good for our environment but also gives us a cleaner and greener future for generations to come.
