Pune! It might not rain much this year, save as much water as you can! (Cached) 25.4.2014 DNA: Opinion
Pune: The El Nino effect and low rainfall prediction might make many realise the importance of water in the coming days. Rising population and surplus need of water, calls for water conservation and management at the city level as well. Though, there are new methods of water conservation coming up every day, they are not being adopted effectively by the citizens.Water conservation and sustainability living has to be encouraged from the household level. Around 135 litres of water is used per person per day for domestic applications. The principle of three R’s, namely, ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ is the basic rule that should be implemented.  “The Three R is nothing but an easy concept that helps in conserving water. To explain it better to the citizens here is a small example. When a car is washed, generally people use pipes and sprays thus wasting all the water. Instead to reduce the quantity of water, use a bucket and cloth to wipe the car.  The dirty water left over after the car wash can be reused for ...

Pune Beware! The e-bomb is ticking... (Cached) 23.4.2014 DNA: Top News
If the housing societies take the lead, then something can happen  The Pune Municipal Corporation is responsible for disposing and recycling of e-waste generated in the city. The civic body has to find out ways and methods of disposing and recycling e-waste. At individual level, we dump the e-waste in our dustbins, which then lands up in our garbage disposal system. Some of the e-waste is being incinerated, which is all the more dangerous for the environment and human health. The situation is such that we don’ t want to segregate our household waste. If the housing societies take the initiative in collecting e-waste and then handing it to over to the PMC for disposal and recycling, then something can happen. PMC must make it mandatory for producers of electronic goods to collect e-waste and help in its proper disposal and recycling. The end-users of electronic products also have to be aware of health hazards from e-waste. Disposal of e-waste has to be very carefully handled as it contains a high degree ...

Twin Enviro Services President David Epstein confirmed to the Routt County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday that his company is interested in providing the community with recycling Dumpsters, which it would in turn haul to a new recycling bailer it intends to install in a new building at the Milner Landfill. Epstein, who has been a strong advocate of recycling everything from construction materials to food waste that is turned into compost at the landfill, told the commissioners he envisioned that no more than a relative handful of people would deliver single-stream recycling items like plastics and cardboard to the landfill. “We do currently have drop-off recycling during hours of operation, but we don’t see much coming our way,” he said. The change being contemplated is that Twin Enviro may begin collecting recyclables from community containers. In the process, Epstein’s company tentatively plans to remove glass from the single stream recycling and reuse it productively at the landfill. The intent ...
