Eying schools for managing electronic waste

Feb 02, 2019

The aim of Hulladek Recycling is to foster the belief of a greener and sustainable earth.

Kolkata: India’s Electronic Waste Management Organization, Hulladek Recycling announces the launch of its new awareness programme, where they are conducting a 30-40 minute long interactive seminars with 100+ school students to bring E-waste and their associated environmental and health hazards into lights.

The seminars will provide the platform to advance the necessary discussion upon current informal environment unfriendly practices of electronic waste disposal such as Acid-bath, Chemical leaching, open burning etc. and the imperative action taken by Hulladek forge a better and environment-friendly E-waste management process.

In today’s digital world E-waste is as fast a growing concern as I even write. Currently, most E-waste recycling activities in India are undertaken by the unorganized sector (Local kabadiwalas). While such sectors only recover 25% of the material resources, with the help of the robust and transparent operational model, organized sectors such as Hulladek Recycling not just set up collection centers and ensure recycling but also recover around 90-95% for the same, as per the norms laid down by the Government.

Appreciating Hulladek ecological efforts Rupa Pandit, a teacher of The Assembly of God Church School said “I appreciate the small steps that you, as a team have started taking and special appreciation to Nandan Mall for always remaining so charged that you never feel that the task is difficult. I am very satisfied and relieved as your team goes on doing what should have been done and set an example to make things happen beyond words.”

In addition to that, for better understanding and impact Hulladek conducted a fun quiz for students and asked for a ‘student-Organized’ E-waste collection drive for the same. Finally, they were requested to report any electronic device laying around to Hulladek and for further encouragement, assured to get certified by their respective Principals for their contribution.

Hulladek Recycling is India’s only authorized electronic waste management organization. The aim of this organization is to foster the belief of a greener and sustainable earth.

The objective behind the formation of Hulladek was to help the various organizations who produce Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) meet their Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) as prescribed in the CPCB’s E-waste (Management) Amendment Rules, 2018.
