E-waste - what can citizens do?

E-waste is a global challenge and an underestimated environmental problem. This project will draw attention to a comprehensive view of the social, environmental and economic aspects of e-waste, electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) that has or could enter the waste stream. E-waste is gradually mounting up to a serious environmental problem, which has so far failed to attract the public interest. We will especially consider the possibilities of reducing, reusing and recycling of e-waste.
