Handing over the collected used plastic pens from neighbouring schools to the Haritha Mission authorities of Kollam Corporation

Extension Activity of the Department - Managing Plastic waste disposal
The Department has a policy to collect used plastic pens from neighbouring schools thus avoiding littering of plastic pens on a large scale. As a part of this extension activity, the Final Year Polymer Chemistry students go to neighbouring schools and give awareness on avoiding littering of plastic waste and make arrangements for collecting used pens at least twice a year. During the year 2019 -2020 our Final year BSc Polymer Chemistry students had informed four of our neighbouring Institutions about this venture. One school namely Mount Carmel Convent A I G H S S, Tangasseri, Kollam, responded positively. Our students went there on October 2020 and received the collected plastic pens weighing around 12 kg. These collections were handed over to the Haritha Mission authorities of Kollam Corporation for recycling on 29/01/2021
