All non-consumable items (packaging material, white goods, electronic goods, automobile and its components, electrical goods, etc) have their life cycles. I feel that the manufacturer / assembler of each product / component must develop the “Destruction Process” of product / component after the completion of the life cycle.
Example 1: Product: Laptop/Mobile/TV/Batteries, etc. The manufacturer must provide the destruction process of the item after it is not repairable / usable.
Example 2: Product: Packaging Material- Corrugated packaging paper/boxes; plastic bottles/containers, etc. Manufacturer/producer must provide the destruction process after the packaging product has served the purpose.
It is manufacturer who knows the chemical composition of the product. Hence, the manufacturer must provide the process of destruction without disturbing environment. more
