    I have recently visited an exhibition, there I met a person who is recycling the plastic waste. They are doing R & D with producing 3D parts with recycled plastic called as Protoprint. Here are their details:

    e-mail: #-Link-Snipped-#

    They are in Pune.

    And for electronic waste- I've no idea about its disposal.

    I believe electronic companies, especially the phone makers should buy back the old phones and maybe use the working parts in the new phones.

    Kaustubh: If you have observed Nokia- is following this practice for several years. Every Nokia Care shop has recycling box for old mobiles- batteries and other accessories.

    As i know there are several students also who take electronic wastes and use it in their projects.One student in Fybsc of my college made a gesture controlled car out of it,and some others had made other stuffs(I don't remember their name however).So find such people and give it away to them...

    You have MANY options:
    1. 1. If you love to tinker... Open up the said "waste". There's always something you can use for your projects.
    2. 2. Ask around in your family or post in FB or G+ or even here in CE... "I have 'these(Enter details and photos, if possible)' e-stuff. I want to donate them to anyone who needs it! If you need 'them' feel free to contact me." (One man's trash is another man's treasure!)
    3. Heck, you can even build a computer from old PC parts and give them to someone who doesn't have a computer. Or you can build your own Linux Machine or a NAS or a server! (Endless possibilities here!) 😀😀😀
    4. If you have the requisite chemistry skills you can #-Link-Snipped-# (as in Au, the shiny gold metal! Be careful what you call WASTE!) and get Richie Rich in the process😁. I thank God that my mother does not know of this.😛
    (You have more options. But these are some that I can think of right now.)

    1. #-Link-Snipped-#.(Please visit this link. Very useful. It even mentions laws on E-waste management in India nd other countries) Let's not add to it.
    2. Electronic Gadgets have materials which are very very rare(Rare Earth Elements). The rate at which new electronic gadgets are coming in we will Earth’s rarest metals ranked in a new 'risk list' - BBC News. So try to REUSE or RETHINK before branding a electronic device as waste.
    3. Most of the Municipal Corporations here suck at cleaning up waste and waste disposal. So please be very careful in handing over E-waste to them. You may be unintentionally harm someone.

      Thanks for reading! And have a nice day/night!
