Abstract

Traditionally waste management in India is the responsibility of municipalities, later has been shared by corporate partially as a legal compliance and as part of social responsibility. Recent Waste handling laws in India also tried to keep consumers in comfort zone while the counterpart consumers in European countries are being charged Advanced Recycling Fee. Though NGO's are trying to do their bit about Consumer awareness concerning dark shades of grey market and recycling & reuse of e-Waste, efforts in isolation are proving to be futile. The paper tries to project the need for a public policy holding all the stakeholders responsible for the Greener Environment, not placing the onus selectively on few.
