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.
