e-waste collection starts in M'lore

Collected waste will be sent to e-environment institute of Bangalore

The MCC has joined its hands with a NGO Sarvodaya Jagruthi Trust for achieving its objective and the collected waste will be sent to e-environment institute of Bangalore.

Speaking to the media persons at the flagging off ceremony, MCC Commissioner Dr K N Vijay Prakash said, e-waste from educational institutions, BPOs and cyber cafes will be collected for about 7 km distance from Infosys to mphasis on trial basis. Approximately two tons of e-waste is generated in the city everyday. We would mark few places of e-waste collection and inform it to the public. The public can bring the e-waste to those places. All the collected e-waste will be stored in a seperate ward in Vamanjoorr and it will be sent to Bangalore once the collected waste will be one ton, he said.

NSS Officer from Roshni Nilaya Professor Vinita Rai said, awareness programmes about e-waste  have been held for the students. The NSS students would start door-to-door e-waste  collection in the days to come, she said.
