Eldeco runs crèches for Labour's Children at all its construction sites. As on February 2015, more than 500 Children are enrolled in crèches in Noida, Lucknow, Kanpur, Sonepat, Panipat, Neemrana, Ludhiana and Jalandhar. They receive free meals, are taught basic hygiene and are imparted elementary education.
Managing household waste in an environment friendly way is an essential but often neglected requirement in residential areas. Keeping this in mind Eldeco Care has initiated the process of household waste management at various Eldeco projects. The waste will be segregated into bio degradable and non-biodegradable waste. Non-biodegradable waste will be recycled for further use and bio degradable waste will be converted into manure. To start with it is being implemented at Eldeco Aamantran, Sec 119, Noida followed by other Eldeco projects.
Waste management under Eldeco Care
The impact it will make on environment
STP: Under Eldeco Care we have STP (Sewerage Treatment Plant) at our township and group housing projects. Through this household and other waste water is recycled and reused for various flushing, gardening and construction work purpose. We recycle approx 80% of the waste water, which helps to reduce the use of ground water. The manure produced in the filtration process is used for horticulture purpose within our complexes.
Rain Water Harvesting: All Eldeco developments are designed with extensive rainwater-harvesting systems. Rainwater collected from rooftops is used for recharging the ground water table through underground recharge pits. This helps to maintain the underground water table.
E-Rickshaw: Pollution through public transport is a big concern in our cities and affects the quality of air. Eldeco Care has introduced pollution free e-rickshaws at Eldeco townships to help and bring down carbon imprint. These e-rickshaws are battery operated and can carry approx. 5 to 6 people. This helps in saving fuel and cutting down pollution. This facility is available for residents living inside township to commute within the township with ease, and in an environment friendly way.
Solar Power: Solar panels have been installed at various Eldeco townships and group housing projects. By using the natural and non-polluting energy from the sun we heat the water, and send the heated water to existing geysers at homes during winters. This has helped our residents in cutting down energy bills by about 15%. At present solar water heaters are installed at Eldeco Estate One-Panipat, Eden Park-Neemrana and Estate One- Ludhiana.
Taking a step forward we now plan to install solar panels at our projects to produce electricity for street lighting and common areas.
