Department of Botany in co-ordination with National Cadet Corps(N.C.C.) Unit & Environmental Protection Club (E.P.C. – Nature Club) of Carmel College organized a ‘Non Degradable Waste Collection Drive’ from 12th  to 13th of August 2016, in the College campus.

The categories of non degradable waste included plastic covers, milk packets, plastic bottles, cans, tins, tetra packs, pens – refills, batteries & CDs. On August 13th, the collected waste  was removed by Nuvem Panchayat authorities and was sent for recycling. The students and staff  greatly contributed to the cause, because of which the program was a big success. Department of Botany, N.C.C. & E.P.C. have jointly decided to make this activity a monthly feature.
