Dimapur, July 12 (EMN): E-waste management company Hulladek Recycling has announced to launch a campaign called ‘Sabko Batao E-waste Ghatao’ in cities. The campaign aims to create awareness about electronic waste, the informal sector of disposing e-waste and the importance of recycling.

With the campaign, Hulladek Recycling aims to provide proper and organised e-waste management solutions across the cities. The company believed that positive changes can be brought by building awareness. It not only provides e-waste disposal systems but also builds awareness among the masses, an update from company stated on Sunday.

Referring to UN-led report, it stated that the world generated 53.6 million tonnes of electronic and electrical waste in the past year,out of which only 17.4% of e-waste was recycled. The Global E-waste Monitor 2020 also found that India generated 3.2 billion tonnes of e-waste in the last year making it the third largest producer of e-waste.

It also stated that electronic waste is not only a major contributor to waste but also attracts the least attention. In spite of the fact that electronics consists 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, read the statement.

Nandan Mall, chief executive officer of Hulladek Recycling said, “In the past, Hulladek has organised over 200+ awareness programmes in schools, colleges and business houses. The main objective behind these programmes is to spread the word about electronic waste, the informal sector of disposing e-waste and the importance of recycling. Owing to the present situation, we have been unable to organise these sessions in different institutes. However, this has not stopped us from creating awareness.

“We have launched a campaign called #SabkoBataoEwasteGhatao. We have been conducting online awareness programmes and webinars for students, professionals and home-makers. The participants of these online programmes and webinars include children from the age of 10 years to adults up to the age of 60+ from all walks of life such as students, MNC employees, housewives, small entrepreneurs, corporate houses and NGOs.”

Hulladek Recycling was founded with the mission to combat the growing menace of e-waste generation and mismanagement in India. Embedded in the evergreen mantra of Reduce, Re-Use and Recycle, the company works towards effectively channelizing the electronic and electrical waste, the statement added.
