Mission eW2K - (eWaste to Knowledge)
Season’s Greetings and Best wishes !
We write this with confidence that your goodself will extend your patronage to the IDF’s humanitarian causes and support us generously
IDF is successfully runing a project Mission W2K, a drive to collect old newspapers/ books to support IDF Bal Gurukul projects in India. From October 2017, IDF launches eW2K, a drive a collect electronic waste materials too.
India is the fifth largest producer of electronic-waste. Annual e-waste production is about 18.55 lakh tonnes and is growing at 25%. Mumbai is on top with 1.2 lakh tonnes.
Only 2.5% of India’s total e-waste gets recycled. Over 95% of e-waste is managed by the unorganized sector and scrap dealers. Without proper recycling the dismantling of this waste creates loss of natural resources, damage to environment and harm to the health of those who handle it. About 5 lakh child labourers are engaged in the unorganised e-waste sector.
Common e-waste from OFFICES & RESIDENTIAL COMPLEXES includes discarded computer monitors, motherboards, cathode ray tubes, printed circuit boards, mobile phones and chargers, compact discs, headphones, Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL - tube lights), mercury vapour lamps and also television sets, air conditioners, and refrigerators.
IDF provides pick up services for e-waste for its safe and proper disposal in government approved facilities.
INDIAN DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION (IDF) (formerly Indian Leprosy Foundation) is a leading national NGO committed to Health, Education and Development. We have an excellent track record of 33 years of humanitarian service.
We request you to place IDF eWaste Box in your esteemed organization/ complex. We will arrange to have the eWaste picked up and disposed on a regular basis. Contacts @ 8419953620. IDF – 022-28762008/3008.
