Kolkata school installs an e-waste collection centre on its campus

In an attempt to spread awareness about e-waste management, Sri Sri Academy on the occasion of its foundation day has launched an e-waste collection centre on its campus for the safe disposal of electronic waste. The institution has announced that parents & students can dump the obsolete electronic waste under their possession such as old phones, batteries, Lamps, chargers, adaptors etc.


The principal of the school Suvina Shunglu said that the amount of e-waste accumulated in households has gone up in the past two years & hence, the motive behind this initiative is to get rid of the waste responsibly so that it does not pollute the environment. 

It is normal for people to dump e-waste in the garbage but what seems harmless comes back to harm us and hence the school has tied up with an e-waste management company that will take care of the waste deposited in the box. The e-waste firm will dispose of it responsibly. It will also provide the school with a report on the amount of e-waste generated by it, she further added.
