    Public Campaign - Social media

    Description: To raise public awareness and educate about the growing e-waste problem as well as encourage consumers to recycle their e-waste, AST Recycling in collaboration with Miss Earth South Africa will be launching a social media campaign called "Rethink E-waste". A collaborative e-waste project will also be executed where AST Recycling e-waste bins will be allocated at a school for collections to be done. A twinning programme will be created with a private and semi-private school in need of the funds from the collected waste. AST Recycling will double the amount that will be collected from e-waste to support the underprivileged school. Any equipment that we will be able to repair and refurbish from e-waste collection will be donated to the underprivileged school.

    Description: As part of the International E-Waste Day campaign, AST Recycling in collaboration with Timbaktuu, a technology-enabled retail aggregator platform that connects and creates access for companies to township and rural communities, will be organizing an e-waste drive in Soweto, one of the biggest townships in South Africa. E-waste is the fastest growing waste stream in South Africa, unfortunately the level of e-waste recycling is very low. While 6 kg/y to 7 kg/y of e-waste is generated for every South African citizen only 360 000 t/y of e-waste is placed on the market. Only 7% to 12% of the total volume is being recycled formally. Creating easy points of collection for e-waste are crucial in addressing this growing problem. Together with Timbaktuu we have identified 25 internet cafes in Soweto township which the local community will be able to use as drop - off points for e-waste. International E-Waste Day will be the launch of a long term project to help tackle the growing e-waste problem in rural areas and townships. We believe that this project will be also beneficial in creating jobs for unemployed youth. There are currently 25 internet cafes that are working in this township that we are looking to facilitate as e-waste drop of points. This will be one of many e-waste drives to South African townships.

    Description: In support of the 2019 INTERNATIONAL E-WASTE day Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) will publish an educational blogpost on our website about why E-Waste Collection is important. This post will be shared via the SRS social media channels and newsletter in an effort to inform as many people as possible about the message. Our colleagues are requested to share the social media posts within their own social media channels. Furthermore SRS will donate trees for every ton (1000KG) of E-Waste delivered into our recycling sites on 14th of October, 2019. This Sims - “E-Waste for Trees” - program will plant two trees per ton, one tree will be planted in Europe and the second one in Africa. Trees and Recycling E-Waste both contribute to a significant reduction of CO2 emissions. Trees capture CO2 emissions, and using recovered E-Waste materials as raw-material in the production process of new products reduces the usage of energy and CO2 emissions significantly. The activities will take place in: The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Austria, United Arab Emirates, South Africa.
