Panaji: Goa Waste Management Corporation (GWMC) will soon be introducing a smart and intelligent e-waste management system, setting an example across country.

We will come up with a model system in Goa, which can be replicated all over the country. There is a need to put a stop to the e-waste flows to informal sector, given its hazardous nature of processing,” GWMC Managing Director Sanjit Rodrigues said at the launch of the Project ‘E-Waste Management Plan for the State of Goa’ today

The 2-year project, to set up a sustainable e-waste management system in the State, will be implemented by Toxics Link that will assess the quantum of this waste generated and also device a model for collection, storage, safe transportation and disposal of e-waste in the State.

Satish Sinha, Associate Director of Toxics Link said that a robust e waste management will enable consumers to dispose off their e waste at a click of a button and track it down, thus bringing in complete transparency.

“E-waste is recognized as one of the most toxic waste streams globally. With the increasing consumption of electronics in Goa, e-waste is also on a rise and can be a cause of serious concern for the state if not managed well,” he said.
