Recycle with joy at Vivo Mobile India Private Limited

Vivo Mobile India Private Limited (Vivo) has joined a CPCB authorised Producer Responsibility Organisation (PRO) Karo Sambhav Private Limited (Authorisation No.: B-29016(6)/PRO/18/WM-III dated 29-08-2018) to fulfil its Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) compliance. For more information on our PRO, please visit www.karosambhav.com.

At Vivo, we are committed to responsible recycling of our end-of-life products and urge all our customers to join our cohesive e-waste movement.

What is “E-Waste”?

As per the E-waste (Management) Rules, 2016, 'E-waste' means electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part discarded as waste by the consumer or bulk consumer as well as rejects from manufacturing, refurbishment and repair processes.

Electronics such as mobile phones, TVs, laptops, printers, fax machines or even their parts, which have reached the end of their useful life are called “E-Waste”. If not recycled in an environmentally sound way, e-waste poses a range of environmental risks.

Where and how can you learn more about your E-Waste?

For any queries related to e-waste management, please reach out to Karo Sambhav at engage@karosambhav.com. You can also call Karo Sambhav’s toll-free number at 1800 2121 434.

Important Do’s and Don’ts

  • As our valued customer, we encourage you to channelise your e-waste only through the collection channels set up by Karo Sambhav.

  • Do not mix e-waste in your home dustbins with other municipal waste.

  • Do not dismantle any electronics/ electrical devices at home. Improper dismantling or recycling of e-waste is harmful for the environment.

  • Do not sell the e-waste to any unauthorised agencies/scrap dealer/informal waste collector.

  • Keep the product in isolated area, after it becomes non-functional/un-repairable so as to prevent its accidental breakage.

Collection Channels of Karo Sambhav

The PRO is setting up channels for collection of e-waste across India. The collected e-waste is channelized by the PRO through its Logistics Service Providers (LSPs) to authorized recyclers.

Karo Sambhav’s overall collection scheme focuses on the below programmes:

Waste Collector Programme

The waste collector programme focuses on formalizing the waste pickers and aggregators. By being a part of the programme, waste pickers and waste aggregators become a collection channel of the PRO and bring transparency to their processes.
