About Electronic Waste
Electronic waste (e-waste) is refers to discarded electrical and electronic items such as wires, mobile phones, computers, batteries, etc. E-waste contains toxic substances and its improper disposal can lead to serious pollution and health problems. With the rapid changes in technology, shorter product life-cycles, changes in media (tapes, software, MP3) and falling prices, there is a fast-growing surplus of electronic waste around the globe. Hence, there is a need to provide more avenues for individual consumers to recycle their e-waste.
Virogeen’s recycling bin is a flagship e-waste recycling programme launched in 2017. As an recycling services provider in electronic products, the programme indicates Virogreen’s commitment to environmental sustainability.
Who is involved?
The programme kicked off with a collaborative consumer-driven environmental effort between telecommunications provider M1 and Virogreen Singapore. As environmentally responsible corporate citizens, the partnership have decided to work together to promote and encourage Singapore citizens to dispose their e-waste in a responsible manner. Together with the support of the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) and National Environment Agency (NEA), this programme has provided more opportunities for the public to recycle their e-waste.
In 2018, the programme expanded to include grassroots organisations such as People’s Association and the various Community Clubs and Resident’s corner to enhance and educate the public about recycling of electronic wastes and its many benefits.
In line with the Singaporean Government’s 3P (People-Public-Private) approach to tackle environmental issues, the partners involved have taken various roles to facilittate programme.
And, of course, you! See the list below for the bins near you! Help to protect our environment and start recycling your e-waste!
• A 2017 global report estimates that the world generated 44.7 million tonnes of e-waste in 2016 – equal to 9 great pyramids!
• About 60,000 tonnes of e-waste are generated a year. This is equivalent to the weight of 220 Airbus A380 aeroplanes!
• About 11kg of e-waste – equal in weight to 73 mobile phones – is discarded by each person a year!
Recycling Made Easy!
You can recycle almost any electronic product in our bins, and do not have to be an existing customer or even have purchased the product from our partners. However, all recycled items must be able to fit through the bin’s 470mm x 150mm slot.
