Pune Goes Green: Mega E-waste & Plastic Waste Collection Drive on February 25

Calling all Pune residents! This Sunday, February 25th, is your chance to make a positive impact on your city's environment by participating in the "PEHEL-2024" e-waste and plastic waste collection drive. Organized by the Pune Municipal Corporation and various NGOs, this city-wide initiative aims to tackle the growing issue of waste management and promote responsible disposal practices.

With over 300 collection centers set up across Pune, residents can easily drop off unwanted electronic devices and plastic items during convenient operating hours (9 AM to 1 PM). From old mobile phones and keyboards to damaged chargers and plastic bottles, the drive accepts a wide range of materials for responsible recycling and processing.

This event isn't just about clearing out clutter; it's about taking a collective step towards a cleaner and greener Pune. E-waste contains harmful toxins that can leach into the environment if not disposed of properly, while plastic waste poses a significant threat to wildlife and ecosystems. By participating in "PEHEL-2024," you're contributing to a more sustainable future for your city and the planet.

So, mark your calendars and join the movement! Visit one of the designated collection centers this Sunday and help Pune reduce its e-waste and plastic burden. Remember, every small action counts, and together, we can make a significant difference.
