Residential E-waste collection – Collected E-waste on the occasion of UAE’s National Environment Day!

Residential E-waste collection - Collected E-waste on the occasion of UAE's National Environment Day!

Collected E-waste from friends and neighbors in the building…Aim is to increase awareness on need to recycle e-waste, rather than dump it with the household waste…Why? Because it reduces burden on virgin resources to manufacture new goods; it saves considerable energy – from extraction to manufacturing, from distributing to disposal; and recycling diverts waste from landfill and reduces environmental pollution!

Collection results are heartening…Plan to do this periodically!

To UAE and all its residents, Happy National Environment Day!!!
