Kolkata: Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Kolkata Divisional Office and Retail Sales Department, West Bengal in collaboration with Kolkata based e-waste and plastic waste management company Hulladek Recycling Private Limited has launched “Freedom from E-waste” campaign for petrol pumps to celebrate the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan initiative.
Supported by Hulladek Recycling, Indian Oil has installed e-waste bins for waste collection from petrol pump staff as well as their customers. The idea behind this initiative is to inculcate “Swachh Bhavna” in individuals visiting the petrol pumps. Hulladek Recycling will be collecting the waste from these ROs once their bins are full and will be channelizing it to authorized recyclers.
The campaign has been launched in 6 Retail Outlets of Kolkata for now: Prince Service Station, Prince Anwar Shah Road, Jodhpur Park; Uma Service Station, Dhakuria; Bypass Service Station, Kasba; COCO, Kasba; Mira Service Station, New Town; and Ganeriwala Brothers, Opposite City Centre – II.
People can drop off their old, broken, outdated and obsolete electronic items like TV, refrigerator, washing machine, mobile phones, wires and cables in designated bins to ensure it goes for safe and certified recycling.
SP Mall, Chairman, Hulladek Recycling Pvt. Ltd. said, “We are glad to see corporations like IOCL taking initiatives to save our earth and create a green future. Hulladek Recycling is all set to paint the town green by establishing proper channels of e-waste management.”
Indian Oil customers and channel partners were educated on the hazardous impact of improper e-waste disposal on human health as well as the environment.
