School campaign or collection
In Slovenia, we are setting up re-use corners, which are intended for everyone who would like to extend the life of their still operating appliances, which they no longer need. The most durable device is always the one we already have, so it makes sense to try to use it for as long as possible. We are placing the corners at the collection points of local utility companies. We want to use this year's International e-Waste Day for a broader media campaign that will support the corners as much as possible and ensure that the word about their locations reaches every small place in our country.
In the corners we collect appliances that are working, are undamaged and safe to use, such as washing machines, refrigerators, freezers, desktops and laptops, consumer electronics, small household appliances, toys, mobile phones, speakers, flat screen TV with remote control, LCD monitors, circular saws , drills, music towers, vacuum cleaners and other suitable electric or battery - operated appliances.
The corners are set up as part of the Life project Turn to e-circural under the slogan # I'm still useful! together with the project partners The Chamber of Public Utilities (a section of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia that associates all Slovenian public service providers) and the company TSD, d.o.o. (waste transportation and collection company in the process of obtaining an environmental permit to prepare waste electrical and electronic equipment for reuse). The project is co-financed by the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning of the Republic of Slovenia and the European Commission. The project extends the life of appliances through the implementation of various activities such as appliance repair, appliance reuse and appliance sharing.
The WEEE Forum a.i.s.b.l. is an international association representing forty six producer responsibility organisations across the globe. Together with our members, we are at the forefront of turning the extended producer responsibility principle into an effective electronic waste management policy approach through our combined knowledge of the technical, business and operational aspects of collection, logistics, de-pollution, processing, preparing for reuse and reporting of e-waste. Our mission is to be the world’s foremost e-waste competence centre excelling in the implementation of the circularity principle.
