Description: Recupel is in Belgium responsible for the collection and processing of discarded electrical appliances. In 2018, the NGO collected more than 117.000 tonnes of electro, or 10.3 kilos per inhabitant. This puts Recupel among the best in the world when it comes to collecting and recycling e-waste. Since 2001, Recupel has invested a lot of collection and awareness campaign towards the consumers. But companies also have a lot of old or broken electrical appliances stocked in their offices. To offer them an easy solution, Recupel will launch a new digital platform for their e-waste on 14 October. Additionally, Recupel will also launch a digital media and public relations campaign.

Activities:

Public Campaign - Social media, Social media, Video reportage

Description: APPLiA would like to create an informative reportage, in the format of a video, that aims to follow the life of an appliance since the moment it reaches its end of life and is ready to be disposed. While walking on the streets, indeed, it often happens to stumble upon abandoned appliances which will not reach a collection point and thus being recycled. Taking this evidence, together with some data on WEEE handling, as a starting point, APPLiA would like to conduct a vox-pop on the topic, leaving afterwards space to some interviews to experts while filming the process undertaken by an appliance once in a collection point. APPLiA will also contribute to the video shading light on the impact of lost e-waste for the environment and the home appliance industry. With the aim of raising people’s awareness on e-waste, the video will also show the correct steps that the appliance at its end of life should follow.

Description: Orgalim special e-waste day:  Orgalim takes the occasion of IEWD to organise a special e-waste collection day to help raise awareness. The Orgalim team collects all the end of life appliances that have been arising over recent times in our office and homes and we will hand them over to Recupel, the Belgium waste management scheme.

Why does it matter? Our climate is changing.  The report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change confirms that the next 10 years are critical to get us on track with the Paris goal. We can still win the race and the efficient, sustainable use of resources throughout the economy will contribute. Each of us can contribute in this mission and each of us has a role to play to get there. Therefore, Orgalim takes its e-waste to a collection point - take your e-waste to a collection point, too!
