Quick Facts

E-waste Recycling In India

In India, 95% of E-waste is recycled by the informal sector in crude and unfavourable conditions. EPR was introduced to deal with the growing ratios of electronic waste the right way. Karo Sambhav, an authorized Producer Responsibility Organisation (PRO), establishes technology-enabled sustainable e-waste disposal. We implement a robust reverse-logistics chain to collect dead electronics from end-consumer and process e-waste via authorized recyclers.

Our Process

Our team will work with you every step of the way to help you reach your zero-waste goals.

Strategy Sessions

While collaborating with you, we shall start by analysing your current waste profile and make suggestions for minor or major improvements. We will assess the gamut of e-waste management techniques practised. For instance, we shall analyse your unsellable inventory, the counts of scrap material created in the production process, sensitive documents and files, packaging, and e-waste. Our proficient team will evaluate the gaps in waste management for you and your team to review.


Manufacturing or production units are the primary points of the waste source. Our expert team analyses the locations and maps out a game plan to identify new efficiencies in EPR e-waste.

We will tailor solutions that help you accomplish your environmental, financial, and operational goals.


Once we’ve established a roadmap to help you with EPR in waste management, we will familiarise your team with relevant and necessary changes. For example, we may suggest installing equipment to bale or shred toxic electronic materials on-site under administered conditions. Our team will work hand-in-hand with your employees, assisting them with EPR awareness, the best and cost-effective ways to proceed with e-waste disposal, material allocation, and more.

Technology Platform

Grassroot + Expertise + Technology = Impact

Through our inception, Karo Sambhav has utilized technology to complement on-ground operations. By combining our expertise on EPR with technology tools like Microsoft Azure, we identified key processes that can be automated, the insights that can be generated, and the impact that can be measured through the Karo Sambhav App.

The App is waste stream agnostic and acts as a multi-stakeholder platform while providing key data sets for decision-makers. We extend this service to global agencies working to advance circular economy in their countries.

Close The Loop.

Through its partnership with the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ), Karo Sambhav has established a model e-waste dismantling unit and a material recovery facility.

The goal?

To determine benchmarks for legitimate operations and financial sustainability of such units, while creating a glasshouse-effect for the sector at large. These units are a critical part of closing material loops by creating end-to-end auditable chains for secondary materials. The project especially caters to the formalization of the informal sector by transitioning them to green jobs, as well as providing multi-material compliance management to bulk consumers.
