1. Disposal of E- Waste:

Disposal of E- waste is one of the best practices of the department of Physics in SRR and CVR Govt. Degree College (A), Vijayawada.  Electronics waste, commonly known as e-scrap or e-waste, is the trash generated from surplus, broken or unused electronic devices. Electronic goods contain various toxic and hazardous chemicals, materials that are released into the environment if we do not dispose of them properly.Electronics’ recycling is the process undertaken by the department of Physics, by recovering materials from  unused devices collected from the departments of the  College tore- use in other refurbished  products. Electronics consists of valuable materials including copper, tin, iron, aluminum, fossil fuels, titanium, gold, and silver etc. Many of the materials that were used in making these electronic devices can be recovered, reused, and recycled including plastics, metals, and glasses. Currently there has been a heavy surge on the usage of various electronic gadgets as the life span of devices is getting out-dated  and the electronic products, once their batteries run out , they are replaced by the updated products. A large portion of E- waste is generated from such outdated devices.  Consumers who choose to buy new  electronic devices are more likely to experience data security breaches or have their identities stolen. In order to avoid this, whenever we are disposing electronics that are still functioning, we need to ensure that we have properly cleared all of our personal information from the device.

The department of Physics started "E- waste collection" as an environmental friendly best practice in SRR & CVR Government Degree College (A), Vijayawada. The department of Physics had MOU with      "Karo Sambhav" through NGO Guide Foundation, Vijayawada for zero waste recycling process. Recycling E- waste enabled to recover various valuable metals and other materials from electronics, saving natural resources, reducing pollution, conserving landfill space, and creating employment at recycling plants. To implement this, the department of Physics has provided an iron E- Waste bin with a lock and a key that was arranged in our college campus to collect E- waste like old computers, accessories, mobiles, chargers etc.The local people also can deposit their E- waste in this bin. Once the bin is filled, it will be transferred to the recycling factories in Pune by Karo Sambhav Organisation. The transport from our College will be handled by the "Guide foundation". In recycling process, all the metals and toxic elements will be separated.  No toxic materials go into earth to maintain an environment- friendly system. If the electronic waste has not been recycled, and dumped with the other normal solid waste in Municipal wastes, they leach out toxic materials into water and earth which is hazardous for human and animal life and also to the soil thereby to agriculture by  destroying the environment.

  The department of Physics has enquired in our city whether there are any E- Waste disposable units in Vijayawada and has not found any such E-Waste bins. At present, the E- Waste from Vijayawada is collected by recycling collectors. They only collect recyclable materials and dump all the remaining solid and liquid into the drainages.The toxic materials thus left, go into earth, water. These toxic  materials like lead remain in earth deposits. This will lead to health hazards. The department  of Physics has obtained MOU with Green Waves, Visakhapatnam. The department of Physics will obtain  certification for recycling of the

 E- waste, that will  be provided by the Pollution Control Board, A. P.After collecting one load of E- waste for recycling, the organization promised to pay the agreed amount to SRR and CVR Govt. Degree College.  In addition, the Certificate of appreciation will also be provided from the Pollution Control Board, Govt. of Andhra Pradesh. If more E- waste is recycled,  less Electronics need to be produced to save the cost of production.  Greenhouse gas levels can be greatly reduced. If the  consumers are educated about how to reuse or recycle their electronics, they can  save money,  environment and also precious life on earth for the present and  the future generations.
