Kolkata: Waste management is a serious concern for developing countries such as India. Moreover, electronic waste is not only a major contributor to waste but also attracts the least attention. In spite of the fact that electronics consist of several hazardous components such as lead, cadmium, mercury, phosphor and many more, most people remain unaware of its impact on the environment and human health. Keeping this in mind, Kolkata based e-waste Management Company Hulladek Recycling has launched a campaign called #SabkoBataoEwasteGhatao in the city, says a press release.
The campaign aims to create awareness about electronic waste, the informal sector of disposing e-waste and the importance of recycling. The campaign has also been launched in cities like Bhubaneswar, Shillong, Guwahati, Jamshedpur, Dimapur, Kohima and Agartala along with Kolkata.
With this campaign, Hulladek Recycling aims to provide proper and organized e-waste management solutions across these cities. The company believes that positive changes can be brought by building awareness. It not only provides e-waste disposal systems but also builds awareness among the masses. The organisation is conducting awareness programs and webinars in schools, colleges and business houses.
