E-waste is the name given to electronic products which are no longer working or nearing the end of their useful life. It includes almost any household item containing circuitry or electrical components with either power or battery supply, Ex - TVs, Monitors, Tablets, Toasters, Dryers, etc. E-waste consists of toxic components and improper disposal these products lead to the possibility of damaging the environment.
Proper disposal and recycling of e-waste is very important and to follow this biodiversity cell came up with an activity for the whole batch where students were asked to collect the E-waste from their house and society and give it for recycling OR to donate the equipment no longer used by them and are in usable state to the needy. Pictures and videos of students performing the activity was collected. All the participants also wrote a small write up about their experience.
