Date:31-10-2017

On 31st October 2017, the 1st and 3rd Semester students of M.Com of T .John College visited 4 R Recycling Pvt. Ltd which is an e-recycling company based in Peenya, Bangalore. The organization is an authorized e-recycler and is involved in extracting metal components from PCB’s, Sim cards, computer chips etc. Mr. Ram, the proprietor of the company, started this entrepreneurial venture 6 years ago with the concept that ‘nothing should go waste’. The facility collects e-wastes from various organizations and breaks them down to their component parts. Each part is segregated and sold as input to different industries.

The students were taken around the facility and each section explained in detail. Mr. Ram shared his philosophy with the students and also shared details of his entrepreneurial journey with them. The students were highly motivated after having experienced such an innovative business idea especially when they saw the extraction of gold from computer component parts!

The visit to 4 R Recycle was an eye opener and a big learning experience for the students and accompanying faculty members. The department thanks the management of T John College for creating the possibility for students to learn through personal experience.
