Waterlogging in service lanes irks commuters 22.7.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Amritsar, July 21 The rainwater recharge wells, constructed along metro bus lanes for rainwater harvesting, is not working properly on GT Road. Water accumulation can be seen in the newly-constructed lanes for the last two days. The situation is worse on Putligarh-railway station stretch where waterlogging has brought the traffic to a standstill. Water chambers can be seen blocked with garbage and debris.

NGOs to start campaign to spread awareness on e-waste 21.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
NGOs working for decades to reduce electronic and electrical waste are worried about the state of Bengaluru, where people are yet to understand the hazards of e-waste. Saahas and Ensyde, two NGOs which have tied up with BBMP to reduce informal recycling of e-waste, will launch 'bE-Responsible', an awareness campaign to mark the anniversary of the waste collection programme on Saturday. "Bengaluru produces an estimated two lakh tonnes of e-waste annually. But 90% of this goes to landfills or scrap dealers who then sell it to illegal recyclers. Despite our efforts to encourage people to drop e-waste at collection points at BangaloreOne centres, we have not seen a good response. There is a need for larger awareness on the issue," said Divya Tiwari, CEO of Saahas. Part of the problem, Divya said, was people's tendency to monetise e-waste. "If you drop a tubelight at our collection point, you have to pay Rs 10, whereas a scrap dealer actually pays for it. However, people should realise that the e-waste given ...
