Old electrical appliances, such as printers, computers, televisions, and refrigerators are taken apart and sorted into different categories by their properties.
The components inside will either be recycled or reused.
Missed out the yearly e-waste collection date? No Worries!
Bring them into the recycling station! Lets do our part to minimise the toxic waste dumped on our Mother Earth.
Many volunteers are needed to help disintegrate
Note: Electrical appliances are made up of a broad range of materials including precious metals, toxic heavy metals, metal circuitry, plastics and glass. Heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic can cause environmental contamination through leaching from e-waste in landfill into water systems. By recycling, this contamination can be avoided and useful resources can be conserved for reuse.
