    Description:
    CAMPAIGN TO AVOID THE GENERATION OF WEEE WASTE COSTA RICA

    Within the context of the global emergency COVID19, our waste recovery company proposes to reduce and / or avoid the generation of electrical and electronic waste in Costa Rica; through a digital campaign. With relevant information, during the week of International WEEE Day.

    Some of the activities promoted internally and externally of the organization are shown below:

    As part of the celebration of the International Day of Electrical and Electronic Waste, * Eco-Resolva * invites you to contribute your bit from your desk. * Removing all unnecessary emails like spam, drafts, unread inbox, etc. from your email *

    * Why is it an important contribution? *

    The mails when sent, emit a low carbon estimate, around 0.3 grams of CO2 each.

    The highest estimate is 50 grams of carbon per email sent, so about 4 billion metric tons of carbon are generated each year worldwide.

    * The carbon emitted by these emails is equivalent to that emitted by 890 million cars worldwide. *




    So, if you want to help the environment, try to delete those emails that you don't need to have and try to send emails only when necessary.

    Description: A public-private cooperation between GIZ german cooperation, FORTECH, and local governments and electronical equipment workshops is being developed in order to capture and collect bigger volumes of WEEE in Costa Rica. The project consists of three main objectives: increasing education on the importance of WEEE recycling and informing the public about established collection points, developing a modern, enviromentally safe recycling process, and establishing alliances between the private and the public institutions in Costa Rica. The model is scalable and is envisioned to expand around the central american region.

    Fortech, a Costa Rican company with more than 25 years of experience in the recycling and chemical industry, developed its own innovative technology to extract strategic metals contained in cell phones, laptops and small appliances, as well as bicycles, scooters and electric vehicles and their batteries.

    SIMEC is a zero-waste procedure, of maximum material recovery, which incorporates an environmentally appropriate solution to ensure the circularity of lithium battery production processes, guaranteeing the sustainability of electric mobility and the sustainable production of electrical and electronic devices.

    Description: OPC-CCSS 2022 electrical and electronic waste collection campaign

    An electrical and electronic waste collection campaign will be carried out for the entire month of October 2022 so that the OPC-CCSS collaborators take from their homes the waste that they have without use and of which it is necessary to give them adequate management. This waste will be delivered to an authorized manager for proper treatment.

    There is an area in the company for employees to place waste, which will then be weighed before delivery to the manager. In addition, collaborators who are teleworking from home are being invited so that they can deliver waste to different authorized collection points throughout the country. They are requested to send the photographs that demonstrate the delivery of the waste.

    We do this action as part of our responsibility to contribute to good actions to care for the planet, as well as as part of our Environmental Management Program, in which we establish objectives, goals and environmental measures for the environment.




    Campaña de recolección de residuos eléctricos y electrónicos OPC-CCSS 2022

    Se realizará una campaña de recolección de residuos eléctricos y electrónicos para todo el mes de octubre de 2022 para que los colaboradores de la OPC-CCSS lleven de sus hogares los residuos que tienen sin uso y de los cuales es necesario darles una gestión adecuada. Estos residuos se estarán entregando a un gestor autorizado para su debido tratamiento.

    Se cuenta con un área en la empresa destinada para que los colaboradores coloquen los residuos, los cuales posteriormente se estarán pesando antes de su entrega al gestor. Además se les está invitando a los colaboradores que se encuentran teletrabajando en sus casas para que puedan hacer la entrega de los residuos en distintos puntos de recolección autorizados a lo largo de todo el país. Se les solicita enviar las fotografías que demuestren la entrega de los residuos.

    Esta acción la hacemos como parte de nuestra responsabilidad de aportar a las buenas acciones para cuidar al planeta, así mismo como parte de nuestro Programa de Gestión Ambiental, en el cual establecemos objetivos, metas y medidas ambientales en pro del ambiente.
