DISPOSAL METHODS  FOR

                                                       PRODUCTS




                                                     Steps to follow for disposal of Harnesses:
                                                     1.  Open up the Harness which has to be discarded completely from all of its buckles
                                                       and loops.
                                                     2.  With the help of a  pair of Scissors an cut out all the metallic components from the
                                                       harness, and collect them in a container. These metallic components are buckles,
                                                       frames, D-rings, and metallic loops.
                                                     3.  Separate out the webbing, pads and the loops from the Harness. These constitute
                                                       the Non-Biodegradable Polymers of the product, and should be disposed off as
                                                       mentioned in the section below.



              Steps to follow for disposal of Helmets:
               1.  Remove the Cradle and Shell-Harness from the Shell of the broken/ damaged
                 helmet.
               2.  Place  all  the  parts  into  a  single  container,  and  this  waste  should  now  be
                 disposed off as the other Non-Biodegradable Polymers.




                                                       Disposal of the Non-Biodegradable Components:
                                                       It is important to place these waste components into specially designated covered
                                                      containers, and proceed to dispose them as per the Regulations of Disposal of Plastic
                                                      materials, or as follows:
                                                      Send the waste to Personnel who Re-cycle the material (Junk-yard or Scrap operators,
                                                      or 'Kabadis')
                                                      Send  the  waste  to  Plastic  Disposal  Grounds  which  have  special  equipment  and
                                                      machinery to execute safe disposal.
                                                      Precautions to be taken while disposing off the Polymer waste:
                                                      1.  Do not mix with Bio-degradable forms of waste, like paper, cotton wastes, etc.
                                                      2.  Do not burn the waste because this will create toxic fumes and shall pollute the air.
                                                      3.  Keep the waste in covered containers away from potential fire hazard, since the
                                                         polymer waste can easily and quickly catch fire.
                                                       4.  Refrain from dumping.




              Disposal of the Metallic Components:
              These metal parts should be put in suitable Containers and can be disposed off as
              Scrap, where it shall reach suitable Re-cycling Plants for further use.
              Precautions to be taken while disposing off the Metallic waste:
              1.  Do not mix with Bio-degradable forms of waste, like paper, cotton wastes, etc.
               2.  Handling of Metallic wastes should be done using proper PPE, to avoid injury
                from sharp edges, or metallic dust particles.
               3.  Refrain from dumping.



                Warning:
                Most synthetic polymers are non-biodegradable; it is preferred that they be put to re-cycle since safe methods of their disposal are still
                under the preview of Environmental and Bio-technological Scientists, world-wide. Recycling of Plastics shall be undertaken strictly in
                accordance with the specifications laid by the Bureau of Indian Standards.
