Kerala IT@School to dispose one crore Kg e-Waste

Thiruvananthapuram: In a new initiative, the IT@School project along with Clean Kerala Company has come out with a programme to dispose the e-waste generated in schools and educational offices.

The programme envisages to remove e-waste accumulated from the year 2000 from over 10,000 schools and educational offices in the state, K Anvar Sadath, Executive Director of IT@School project, said here Tuesday.

It was estimated that through this programme over one crore kgs of e-Waste would be processed out, he said.

IT@School project which fosters Information and Communication Technology (ICT) education and e-Governance in Kerala Education department, thus addresses the year old problem of accumulated e-waste in schools which eats-up huge space of IT labs, besides obstructing the lab activities in a large way, he said.

State owned Clean Kerala Company will collect the e-Waste in batches of 500 Kg from schools, for which neighbouring schools will be clustered, he said.

By ensuring the proper removal of e-Waste of such huge quantities from schools, IT@School would not only enable the labs to have more usable space, but also ensures that the toxic elements in the e-Waste are not dumped in to earth, which otherwise could have caused irreversible damage in the environment, he added.
