e-CAP is a e-waste Collection and Awareness Program. Started in 2013, the program is an initiative by Tes-AMM, IWMA, CII YI and Report Bee. The aim of the program is to collect e-waste from schools and thereby spread awareness about e-waste among the young e-waste contributors of the society. In it's first year the program,collected over 500 kgs of e-waste from just 4 schools. Over the last couple of years, nearly 50 schools in and around Chennai have participated in the E-CAP Program and over 5000 kgs of e-Waste has been successfully collected and disposed. This year, in 2017, we hope to reach out to 100+ schools and collect and dispose around 10,000 kgs of e-Waste.
