Electronic waste or e-waste describes discarded electrical or electronic devices. Used electronics that are destined for refurbishment, reuse, resale, salvage recycling through material recovery, or disposal are also considered e-waste. The informal processing of e-waste in developing countries can lead to adverse human health effects and environmental pollution.
In a first of its kind project to be ever done in India Rekart and Indian Railways will be collaborating together for a Waste Management Programme. Under this initiative Rekart will be setting up the very first Material Recovery Facility for Indian Railways. This MRF plant will play a crucial role in ensuring proper disposal of the waste generated within the premises for around 30 stations. The MRF is located at Lahori Gate in Delhi with a capacity to process Mixed Waste. MRF will process the waste by segregation, the waste will be segregated into various categories and bailing would also be done for the recyclable waste. All the waste like leftover food and scraps etc. will after segregation be diverted towards the composting process.
Integrated Solid Waste Management has always been the approach that should be adopted on a wider scale due to it's comprehensive steps like waste prevention, composting, recycling and safe disposal. ISWM is more of a approach than a solution that focuses on all aspects of waste right from minimization to disposal but also there is an emphasis of selecting measures for example waste minimization measure considering the local condition and what would be appropriate for such conditions. That's where Rekart steps in with vast experience of various services we help you execute the best Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan.
Construction and demolition waste is often the kind of waste that is neglected and not given a thought about but is quite hazardous if disposed directly to landfill. In the year 2016, an estimated amount of 150 million tonnes was disposed and only 1% of this waste ever gets recycled due to lack of infrastructure. Rekart proudly shares that we contribute to making the construction industry more circular by recycling C&D waste. We have partnered with authorised recyclers to provide services to make your decision of unavoidable disposal shift to a more appropriate recycling alternative.
Legacy waste is the waste disposed at the landfill that is usually mixed waste that stays lying there for years and years. The only way to deal with this and reclaim the land is biomining which involves extraction of minerals that are useful from the waste. This method is not only effective but is also approved by CPCB for use provided guidelines are followed. This is an essential step to ensure that the waste disposal becomes more circular and also the various threats posed by landfill sites can be avoided. Rekart is also dealing with biomining of legacy waste with an innovative approach.
