Waste Management

Provide infrastructure, educational, communication, and experiential support for developing village water supply, sanitation and hygiene systems.

Waste management initiatives at TRY started in 2004 when it, along with other organizations, participated in a forum called the Committee for Clean Patna. It prepared a concept paper for cleaning and greening Patna city. It was envisaged that each of the organizations which had helped prepare the concept paper, would take up a certain number of issues and work out practical demonstrations that could serve as models for the whole city. Subsequently, TRY took up the issues of solid waste management, conservation of green spaces and promotion of civic responsibility as part of its mandate.

Erase E-Waste

We write this with confidence that you will extend your patronage to the TRY’s humanitarian causes and support us accordingly. TRY is about to start a project named e-rase e-Waste, a drive to collect e-waste like computer accessories, mobile & accessories, electronic goods such as TVs, washing machine, fridge, radio, watches & clocks, video games, tube lights, CFL & LED bulbs, calculators, landline phones etc t support TRY’s Environmental projects in India. On 15 August 2019, we are going to organise a special drive to collect e-waste materials. India is the fifth largest producer of electronic-waste. Annual e-waste production is about 18.55 lakh tonnes and is growing at 25%. Mumbai is on top with 1.2 lakh tonnes. Only 2.5% of India’s total e-waste gets recycled. Over 95% of e-waste is managed by the unorganized sector and scrap dealers. Without proper recycling the dismantling of this waste creates loss of natural resources, damage to environment and harm to the health of those who handle it. About 5 lakh child labourers are engaged in the unorganised e-waste sector. Common e-waste from OFFICES & RESIDENTIAL COMPLEXES including discarded computer monitors,  motherboards, cathode ray tubes, printed circuit boards, mobile phones and chargers, compact discs, headphones, Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL – tube lights),  mercury vapour lamps and also television sets, air conditioners, and refrigerators. TRY will provides pick up services for e-waste for its safe and proper disposal from government approved facilities. TRY is a leading national NGO committed to Health, Sanitation, Skills and Environmental Awareness.  We have an excellent track record of 15 years of humanitarian service. We request you to place a TRY e-Waste Box in your esteemed organization/ complex.  We will arrange to have the e-Waste picked up and disposed on regular basis.

What is E-waste?

Electronic waste or E-waste is a term for electronic products that have become unwanted, non-working or obsolete, and have essentially reached the end of their useful life. Why do we need to adopt safe disposal of E-waste? E-wastes are considered dangerous, as certain components of some electronic products contain materials that are hazardous, depending on their condition and density. The hazardous materials pose a threat to human health and environment if improperly disposed. Hence safe disposal methods need to be adopted to prevent release or leaching of toxic materials from E- waste into the environment.
