E-Waste Program

E-Waste Recycling Program


Let the future generation enjoy the Healthy Environment! Lets take care of the environment. 


Electronic devices marketed by our company, like touchscreen components, touchscreen monitors, open frame touch monitor, touch computers and related peripherals such as MSR, Barcode Readers, Power cables, etc. will one day need to be discarded for various reasons. Such discarded electronic devices are called “Electronic Waste”(e-waste) or “Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment” (WEEE). 

As technology progresses and human dependence on electronic devices increase, so does the quantity of e-waste which is being generated. While these devices make our lives more comfortable, we have the responsibility to ensure the safe and efficient disposal of these electronic devices at the end of their life, so that they don’t adversely affect our environment. Most of the above mentioned electronic devices contain various types of materials which can be recycled and recovered for future use. By doing this, we are preventing further extraction and usage of our already limited natural resources. Also, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gases which get generated during manufacturing of new products. 
 

Do not Throw in Dust Bin

If you find the above symbol on any product or it’s packing, it means that such a product should not be disposed off along with regular household waste. Instead it is our responsibility to hand it over to professional organizations which dispose such e-waste in an environment friendly manner, by dropping the product to a nearby collection center. 

To know where you could hand over one of our products, please call us on our toll free number 1800 22 4755 or +91-22-27574945 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., Mondays to Saturdays. You could also send us an email on support@leviatechnologies.com . Our team will guide you, on where you could find the nearest e-waste collection center.

RoHs Statement


Reduction in the use of hazardous substances (India)
 

This product complies with the “E-Waste (Management) Rules, 2016” CHAPTER V, rule 16, sub-rule (1) . Whereas New Electrical and Electronic Equipment and their components or consumables or parts or spares do not contain Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Hexavalent Chromium, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers beyond a maximum concentration value of 0.1% by weight in homogenous materials for lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers and of 0.01% by weight in homogenous materials for cadmium. except of exemptions set in Schedule 2 of the Rule.

Media Sanitation

We recommend Customers refer to the “The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Guidelines for Media Sanitization NIST Special Publication 800-88 to manage data sanitizing or destruction”.

NIST recommends three different ways to “sanitize” a hard drive:

 Clearing

Overwriting the entire drive with new data so that the old data is no longer readable by a computer, although it may be possible to retrieve some data in a laboratory using signal processing equipment and specially trained personnel.

Purging

Removing the data at a more fundamental level, either using the drive’s own controller electronics to carry out the task, or by degaussing (placing the drive in a machine that generates a strong magnetic field). Purging should remove all traces of data so that it is impossible to recover even if the storage medium is analyzed in a laboratory.

Destroying

Physical destruction can be accomplished using a variety of methods, including disintegration, incineration, pulverizing, shredding, and melting.

For Media Sanitization instructions, please see NIST Special Publication 800-88 (Guidelines for Media Sanitization), Section 5 - “Summary of Sanitization Techniques” and Appendix A - “Minimum Sanitization Recommendations for Media Containing Data”.
