Bin here, dump that! 26.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Waste segregation has always been a concern in the city. In the past, the focus was more on solid and wet waste and not much on e-waste. In a move to collect e-waste effectively, a bin was installed on CMH Road, near MK Retail, recently. Bengalureans have welcomed this move and suggest that more such measures should be taken. The bin is jointly set up by Saahas and Environmental Synergies in Development (Ensyde) and is supported by VMWare. Manvel Alur, CEO and founder of Ensyde, says that this move was done as part of the programme called bE-Responsible. "Weve been trying to experiment with different drop locations that will make it convenient for residents to drop off e-waste. We already have 10 BangaloreOne centres and two post boxes to collect e-waste but we wanted to experiment in a public space and what is better than a grocery store for this?" she says. While many dont understand that e-waste is a big problem, she says that "e-waste is the new plastic". "Gadgets have a short ...

Small cities choke as India remains callous to rising bad air 15.11.2017 deccanherald.com
In the northern Indian city of Moradabad fumes from burning electronic waste blend with seasonal smog to create an even deadlier mix of pollutants than in Delhi, where filthy air has caused public outcry and made global headlines. Indias smog crisis has centred on the capital but pollution is as bad or worse beyond its borders, with millions in smaller cities like Moradabad barely aware of the harmful effects of the air they breathe. For more than a week toxic smog has hovered over densely populated regions of northern India and Pakistan, sending pollution levels soaring to many times the World Health Organization safe limit. Delhi, the worlds most polluted capital city, became the epicentre of the crisis as doctors declared a public health emergency and sent millions of students home from school. But in Moradabad, like many cities across northern India, air pollution was also off the charts. Yet few appeared fazed at their citys degraded environment despite the metallic taste hanging in the air. "There ...

CDs don't go in dry waste bin 14.11.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Heera bai works as a domestic help in one of Mumbai's apartment complexes. She, like the family she works for, would earlier throw all the garbage in a common bin. Since last month, when the city's municipal body asked for waste to be segregated in different containers as per wet and dry waste, the society has provided blue-coloured garbage bins. Green, she is told, is for wet waste and blue for dry. Following the logic, she throws all the waste paper from the craft work little Shael and his friend Riyaaz had done into the blue bin. But Shael's elder sister, Shaila stops her, saying, "Woh hare dabbe mein jayega (That will go in the green bin).” Heera is visibly confused. “Lekin woh gila nahin hai (But that's not dry)!” The confusion didn't end there. Their father Rajeev decided he must clean up the music cabinet. He transfers all the songs from the CDs onto a hard drive. Once he's done, he dumps all the CDs into the blue bin for dry waste. The following morning the society's housekeeping staff told ...
