A survey conducted by e-CIRCLE found out that e-waste management in Dimapur was in a pathetic condition. 

This was stated by co founder, e-CIRCLE, Bendangwala Walling during an awareness programme on e-management held at Borlengri Ao Baptist Church, on October 16.

Walling stated that e-waste comprises 70% of overall toxic waste, whereby she added that if not disposed or managed properly, it was very much harmful for the environment.

In this regard, she urged the gathering to dispose- off e-waste only through recognized dealers.

She said e-CIRCLE, was the first authorized e-waste collection centre in the state, recognized by Nagaland Pollution Control Board. 

She further added that e circle had collected more than 40 tonnes of e-waste in Dimapur and conducted over 40 sensitization programmes throughout the state. 

Walling also stated that e-Circle has been organising such awareness programme in different platforms such as schools, colleges, Churches, government offices etc. so as to provide adequate awareness on e waste management.

In regards to conducting e-waste management and awareness programme in Churches, she maintained that Churches were one amongst the best place to provide awareness on e-waste as people from all walks of lives come together.

Walling maintained that more than 53.6 million tonnes of e-waste were generated globally, whereby in 2019 alone, India generated 3.2 million tonnes.

She further maintained that out of the 3.2 million tonnes generated, only 1 million ton were documented, meaning recycled or managed in environmentally friendly manner.

Walling also maintained that though burning of waste might not be the best way to manage waste, she urged the gathering to acquire proper knowledge on how to segregate waste and burn them, so as to avoid inhaling harmful substances.
