In India, E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules 2011 have been notified by the Central Government. LG Electronics stands committed to implement E-Waste Rules. LG Electronics has done tie-up with the authorized e-Waste recycler for facilitating our customers to enable them to dispose off e-waste products after its end-of-life. In this process, the customer would be interacting directly with the authorized agency meant for handling the e-waste products without involving any 3rd parties.
Consumers could contribute to resource conservation and prevent potential environmental problems by a simple action — the proper depositing of their old consumer durable products and its accessories. Electronic waste is to be disposed off separately from the general waste stream via designated collection facilities identified by LG Electronics. For that customer has to register a request on the call center of LG Electronics.

Once more specific enforcement is underway, LG Electronics will work hard to fulfill its responsibilities as a producer and will make contributions to the preservation of the environment in China as well as to the safety of Chinese consumers.
Green Box Campaign
