RECAP: Slovenia WEEE campaign »Odločuj!« inititive in Pomurje region
"Separate E-waste and protect the environment," was the headline under which yet another regional campaign of the Life+ Slovenia WEEE Campaign »Odločuj!« was successfully completed, this time in the Pomurje region. The e-waste collection and awareness initiative was carried out by ZEOS with the cooperation of one of our important project stakeholders »Saubermacher-Komunala«, local public waste collection provider, and media support of radio »Radio Murski val« which announced the end of the regional campaign on Friday, 12th April.
Altogether 24 schools from the left bank of the river Mura participated in the initiative. With the help of the local community, altogether 18 different municipalities, students and teachers collectively turned-over more than 235 tons of waste electrical appliances and batteries. The result is more than perfect, because the amount collected in just under a month represents almost two-fold the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment collected by the public service provider Saubermacher-Komunala in the region annually.
Recycle or reuse e-waste and protect the environment!
Between 12th and 15th March Life+ SLovenia WEEE campaign ran a large collection and awareness raising initiative about the importance of WEEE recycling in the "Pomurje" region. In cooperation with Saubermacher - Komunala Murska Sobota (local public waste operator) and 18 schools in the area we collected all kinds of E-waste and waste batteries. Collection took place in schools and nearby collection centers, where individual communities are encouraged to help their school collect the most e-waste to win a concert. Every particpant enters a draw to win a refrigerator.
