It aims to cover a total of 326 schools, 188 RWAs, 134 office clusters/bulk consumers, 176 retailers, 156 informal sectors, and four healthcare camps via on ground workshops apart from over 4,000 collection program activities.

The company would also conduct a pan India student videography competition, inviting the various students and schools across the country, to create a video highlighting the current e-waste problem and offer possible best practices to deal with the same. The contest winner video will be used as Clean to Green Brand video for FY21-22.

Neetu Kumari Prasad, Member Secretary, TSPCB, said "Even as technological advancements are opening up new and unique doors of opportunities for growth and development in the country, they are creating a greater and more urgent need for each individual to become conscious of appropriate methods to dispose of the electronics once they become obsolete. The Clean to Green on Wheels is a ground-breaking opportunity to reach out to millions of Indians, turning each one of them into ambassadors for spreading awareness of the correct ways to reduce, reuse, recycle, and dispose-of e-waste, for a greener and healthier environment."
