However, the recycling project only has one vision that is, to protect the environment from e-wastage materials, the company won’t provide any replacements or repairs to the products. One of the Mi spokesperson claimed that

“To act responsibly towards the environment, we have pledged to recycle electronic items, such as mobiles, power banks, speakers, headphones, etc. that are intended to be discarded as waste by the consumer.”

E-wastage became the severe problem to the environment, and it affects human health conditions. In case we didn’t perform any dismantling of the electronic wastage before throwing into the garbage, it may cause various environmental impacts such as Lead & Barium metals will be leached into the ground water and release toxic gases. Print circuit boards (PCB) should be properly dismantled before throwing into the garbage or in rivers because it will emit glass particles, dust, lead, tin, brominated dioxin, mercury particles into the atmosphere which causes various health issues.

So to prevent the effects caused by e-wastage most of the countries started recycling projects in which TV’s, VCR’s, mobile phones, computer components and other electronic products will be recycled. In the recycle process most of the electronic products contain valuable substances such as lead, copper and gold particles which will be collected.

If there are unused electronic products in your home and you can hand over the product to the Xiaomi recycling project, you should fill the online application by logging into the Mi account. Once you complete the application process, Xiaomi India authorized recycler will contact you within a period of 7days and your product will be collected from you within a period of 15days and Mi India recycling project will not charge anything from the users.

Although there are some recycling companies present in India, but none of the mobile manufacturers has not started anything like this project. Xiaomi India e-wastage management step is extremely positive and eco-friendly, so those who own unused electronic products at home should hand over their devices to the Mi India recycling project to take part of the environmental protection mission.
