About the project

recycleThe main objective of the “Slovenia WEEE campaign” project is to raise awareness regarding environmental issues concerning the manufacture and use of electrical and electronic equipment, handling of WEEE and their treatment and recovery (including reuse and recycling), with a special emphasis on households and school children in Slovenia.

Foreseen activities for reaching our goal in the coming two years, between October 2011 and October 2013, will focus on public motivation and distribution of knowledge and information about responsible handling of WEEE.
