Delhi minister blocks e-waste recycling

January 5, 2018

Imran Hussain

Imran Hussain has reviewed e-waste management rules and instructed the capital’s authorities to halt the dismantling and recycling of e-waste.

As The Asian Age reports, during a meeting with senior officials, Hussain said that the “dismantling and recycling of e-waste was not permitted in the capital.”

“E-waste management in Delhi assumes significance in view of the fact that use of electronic, telecommunication and computer devices has increased manifold consequently giving rise to corresponding increase in wastage of old electronic and electrical equipment,” explained a statement from the Delhi government.

India’s amended e-waste management rules from 2016 require all producers of electronic and electrical equipment to “apply for extended producer responsibility (EPR) for handling and managing e-waste.”

The EPR is an authorisation given by the country’s Central Pollution Control Board for five years; to obtain it, a producer “is required to submit a detailed plan for collection of e-waste, mode of collection, details of collection points, and agency responsible for such collection.”

The Delhi Pollution Control Committee (known as the DPCC) must check the compliance of the conditions set out in the EPR authorisation in the region. Officials from the DPCC revealed that, so far, the CPCB “has given EPR authorisation only to 47 producers” from the National Capital Territory of Delhi.

In addition, Mr Hussain reviewed the country’s 2016 Construction and Demolition Waste Management Rules.

He revealed that “the new rules were aimed to check the indiscriminate disposal of construction and demolition waste and enabling the channelisation of such waste for recycling and re-use.”
