Govt authorises 37 e-waste collection centres across city 18.5.2017 DNA: Opinion
In a bid to promote segregation of e-waste in the national Capital, the Delhi government on Wednesday authorised 37 waste collection centres. The decision was taken as the Environment Department has been raising concerns regarding the unauthorised dismantling and recycling of e-waste, which poses a great danger to human health and environment, for some time now. E-waste is generated when old mobile phones, computers, laptops, TV sets, and other electronic and electrical material become obsolete. Generally, users dispose such waste by selling these items to local scrap dealers or kabadiwalas, who are ignorant about handling e-waste. As a result, e-waste often ends up being burnt for extraction of valuable metals, which releases harmful gases in the atmosphere and causes air pollution. "E-waste should be given only at the Delhi Pollution Control Committee authorised collection centres in strict adherence to the e-waste management rules," Environment Minister Imran Hussain said. The minister was addressing ...

Dog’s Eye View: Reaching critical mass 12.5.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Editor’s note: This column was originally published in summer 2016. It is being repeated to bring our awareness forward this summer in an ongoing attempt to protect our environment and valley. Most of us are environmentally conscious. We recycle, leave no footprint when we camp, take our own bags to the grocery store and purchase environmentally friendly products. We work at respecting Earth and preserving our planet for future generations. On top of that, we are critically aware of large-scale contamination and the effect of oil spills on our water quality. The good news is that more and more people are following the tenets of environmental awareness every day, and grand scale corporations are being held accountable for contaminating our environment. But there is one pollutant that seems to slip under the radar for most people, and this pollutant is multiplying at an alarming rate. Water quality is highly affected by this product as snow melts and our waterways increase flow with spring runoff. Our ...
