“To act responsibly towards the environment, we have pledged to recycle electronic items, such as mobiles, power banks, speakers, headphones, etc. that are intended to be discarded as waste by the consumer. When an electronic product reaches the end of its life, we take it back and recycle it.,” said Xiaomi.
This e-waste management solutions are offered by TES-AMM India, who will pick up e-waste from your location within within 15 days, after you fill the e-waste take back form.
