In order to control threats that e-waste could pose to the environment in the coming years, the Chandigarh administration is all set to launch a unique service on today.
If you have a non-functional electronic gadget that you want to dispose of, you now have a chance of doing it in an eco-friendly way, and that too very conveniently. All you need to do is call on a toll free number. Chandigarh Adviser K.K. Sharma will launch this facility on Wednesday.
“UT Adviser K.K. Sharma will launch a toll free number on Wednesday. Your product will be collected in 72 hours. If you’re having any difficulty in disposing large sized electronic product like a fridge, an AC, monitor, coolers etc you can call and our men will come and assess the product and pay you a reasonable amount.”
Apart from this, E-waste collection bins are also being set up in residential and commercial areas in at least 10 locations of the city. This move calls for an individual’s responsibility towards environment.
For this the administration has tied up with CII’s Young Indians chapter who has roped in Roorkee-based e-Waste firm ‘Attero Recycling’ that has agreed to collect the e-Waste from the city.
