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.
