An E-waste awareness and collection drive was organized by members of IIS Yuva Chaupal in the University campus from 26th Feb to 28th Feb 2015. The idea behind this activity was to create awareness among Staff and students of the University to a very important issue relating to Environment.
An effort was made by members for a cleaner, safer world by putting up posters in the entire campus, visiting classes and educating students about E-waste and its impact on environment. Also, an enquiry/collection desk was set up by the members near E-Block on all three days. Some contribution has been received by staff and students in the form of mobiles, keyboards, remotes, calculators, printer etc. A small beginning has been made which Yuva members shall take on further.
Earlier in Jan 2015, an E-waste collection centre was set up in Room No 403. Students who now wish to deposit E-waste articles like discarded mobile phones, laptops, computers and peripherals, and small electronic appliances can submit it at the collection centre.
All the collected E-waste articles will be handed over to an authorized E-Waste Collector/Recycler in association with CII, Jaipur chapter.
