Toxic Links: India, currently, is estimated to generate more than 4 lakh tonnes of e-waste annually. Our college as a bulk consumer of computers and other electronic apparatus is no exception from this trend. The generation is estimated to go up many times in coming years, making it a critical issue. However, e-waste is not just a problem of waste quantity or volumes. The concern is compounded because of the presence of toxic materials like lead, mercury, cadmium, certain brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and many other chemicals. To sensitize the students and staff against this critical issues college has taken help form a Delhi based NGO Toxic Links. With the help of this organization college is trying to make connection with Government approved E-waste Recycler to dispose the e-waste of the college as per the E-Waste Management Rules-2011, Govt. of India.
