About 50 metric tons of electronic waste a year is generated worldwide. Attero Recycling Private Ltd. bills itself as the first company in India to do end-to-end recycling of electronics, picking up the e-waste -- including used computers, cell phones, network gear and television sets -- from sites and processing it.
