e-waste in India

Goripalya, one scrap market in Bangalore takes in 10 tons of junk PCs and other e-waste every day, India's Economic Times newspaper reports.

"Only 6% of the companies in India have an e-waste policy. The rest are still supplying their electronic waste to the informal sector," the paper reports. "Why should the informal sector convert when none of the companies are interested in giving their waste to formal recyclers?"
