What is E Waste Day? How to Participate?

October 14th is observed as the International E waste Day to highlight growing e waste issues and to ideate ways to curtail them. As a leading E waste recycler in the UAE for several years, Madenat Al Nokhba does not miss any opportunity to create awareness about Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling. So, for this year’s E waste day, we are recycling most of the E waste free for the entire month of October 2020. This will involve non hazardous items like electrical appliances/machines; electronic items/devices/IT equipment; wire cables etc and hazardous items such as batteries, light bulbs/tube lights and toner cartridges. We have smashing competitive rates for all these services.

In 2019 alone, the world generated over 53.6 Million tons of E waste, of which only 17.4% of was recycled. From this year moving forward, we want everyone to be a part of this collective effort to increase this recycling number and reach a goal of zero E-waste in landfills. How can we achieve this?

Here are 5 things you can do to participate in E Waste Day

  1. Discuss about E waste problems with your family, friends & Co-workers. Gather facts and figures to support your discussion. You can read our blog for some E waste recycling data.
  2. Talk to at least one child about E waste recycling. Let us educate the future generation about the E waste problems and build a habit of E waste recycling in them from now on.
  3. Collect all the E waste in your house, office, community including IT equipment, cables, batteries, spent lamps etc and hand over to a local recycler. If you are in UAE, contact us at info@madenat.ae  or call us at 043271778
  4. Place E waste bin around your community where you can be collecting all E waste items for periodic recycling
  5. Make sure you are not keeping batteries and broken spent lamps for a long time in the bin or in your house. They are hazardous waste and can harm you if the hazardous components get released in the environment

Are there any more interesting ways to celebrate the International E waste day? Comment below to let everyone know about it. Let us come together to recycle 100% of the E waste every year and live in a cleaner and healthier environment. Let’s make our planet Green again!

“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.”

Top 4 Excuses

Top 4 Excuses Used To Avoid Recycling

Not many of us understand the importance of recycling…But instead of digging deeper to find solution, some try to get away with silly excuses. Here are the Top 4 excuses irresponsible people use, to avoid recycling.

I don’t create that much waste

Really? As per global data, every human being on earth produces over 600 Kgs of trash a year. So, which one is it, you are not a human or you don’t’ live on earth? From food, clothes, shelter to electronics, lighting equipment to all the plastic that it is wrapped in… everything we use, has the ability to turn into trash. So next time someone tells you they don’t create crap, tell them that their crap starts from that sentence itself.

Recycling process is very tedious

Yes, it is a tedious process. The recycler segregates the trash, puts it in massive recycling machines which than separates the plastic, metals and other items, which they package and downstream to manufacturers again…But we do not have to worry about all that, do we? We just need to keep a recycling bin in our house and once it is full, give it to the nearest recycler. Was that tedious? Well…NO!

Why should I pay for recycling?

Didn’t we just mention all the hassle a recycler has to go through to recycle? It takes manpower and massive machinery to recycle the items we provide them. But by investing in all that now, they make sure that we don’t make the environment any more inhabitable for us and our future generations. We should pay the minimal service charge to the people who are saving the environment on our behalf. Isn’t that only fair?

What is my benefit?

Our planet is already getting inhabitable with all the plastic in oceans, chemicals in land and dust in air. So, if you wish to stay happy on the planet, you need to first make the planet happy. Isn’t cleaner air, healthier soil and fresh water benefit enough? Think!

Now next time when you come across anyone who is giving excuses for not recycling…you know how to answer them. You are not one of them, are you?
