Hi Mi Fans!
E-waste is the fastest growing waste stream on the planet. With the proliferation of devices and billions more expected to be generated by mobility/cloud/Internet-of-Things trends, it is clear this is a challenge that will continue for many years to come.
In our commitment to ensure a greener tomorrow, Mi is offering an e-waste take-back & recycling service that adheres to the E-waste (Management) Rules, 2016 issued by the Ministry of Environment and Forest, Government of India. 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. For this program, e-waste management solutions are currently offered by TES-AMM India.
Kindly note that this program is only for End of life products only which are no longer operational. This program doesn't promise any support for damaged/faulty products whether it is repairs or exchanges.
All Mi products are RoHS compliant. Find RoHS declarationFAQs
