We initiate to collect E-waste from our LSGI in order to avoid the hazardous effect of E-wastes

Continuously technology is changing and people adapt with newer object where the dumped electronics actually contain toxic substances - therefore they must be handled with care when no longer wanted or needed. When electronics are improperly disposed and end up in landfills, toxic chemicals are released, impacting the earth’s air, soil, water and ultimately, human health.
