»E - odpadke ločuj in okolje varuj!«
Navedena akcija poteka v sklopu LIFE+ projekta Slovenska osveščevalna kampanija ravnanja z odpadno električno in elektronsko opremo (LIFE10 INF/SI/000139), akcije C2 Dan odprtih vrat. V navedeni akciji bomo izvedli osveščevalno zbiralne akcije po slovenskih občinah z namenom osveščanja o pomembnosti pravilnega ravnanja in oddajanja odpadne električne in elektronske opreme (E-odpadkov) in odpadnih baterij. V občinah, bomo skupaj z njihovimi izvajalci javnih lokalnih služb ravnanja z odpadki, izvedli mesečno akcijo zbiranja E-odpadkov, občanom razdelili letake, na ogled postavili E-transformerja. V sklopu vsake akcije pa bomo za sodelovanje nagradili enega občana z novim hladilnikom.

HOST: Today, ZEOS, the electrical and electronic equipment management company, presented their project to raise awareness of the broader public and schoolchildren on the importance of separate collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment, luminaries and portable battery and accumulator waste. Several collecting and awareness raising campaigns and events will be organised in Slovenia over the next two years. Jože Skok will present more on the topic.
HOST: Zeos pointed out that electrical and electronic equipment waste does not belong in municipal waste, but should be disposed of separately in the provided containers, at collection centres or during special campaigns, as explained by Branka Biček

PETRA KERČMAR, host: Do you know where you can dispose of used batteries, computer equipment, luminaries and household appliances? If not, you belong to the majority of inhabitants of Slovenia who do not know this information or falsely think they would have to pay a large sum in order to dispose of such waste.
At a press conference held on Wednesday 07 December 2011 in Ljubljana, the electrical and electronic equipment management company, Zeos, presented an integrated project to raise awareness of the broader public and schoolchildren on the importance of separate collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), luminaries and portable battery and accumulator waste (waste PBA).
- Before buying a new appliance, let us consider whether we really need a new one and whether we can still make use of the old one.
- If we decide to make a purchase, we dispose of the old appliance at the store. The merchant will accept it free of charge.
- Old appliances are also accepted free of charge at collection centres where separate waste collection is organised and where WEEE has its own special section. Here, the responsibility is transferred to ZEOS.
- In the name of members of the collective scheme of WEEE management, we accept the waste equipment from merchants and collection facilities and take care of its further treatment.
- The equipment is sorted by type and transported to individual operators for disassembly; individual components are then taken for further processing.
- For certain groups or parts of equipment, there are no appropriate processing facilities in Slovenia, and transport to other countries is therefore required.
Raising awareness about proper management of waste electrical and electronic equipment influences the proper collection of waste equipment, which consequently allows further treatment and recovery.
All collected WEEE is treated and recycled in accordance with existing regulations and available permits. Treatment is provided for those WEEE groups for which appropriate technology is available in Slovenia, i.e. technology for the removal of housings, cables, glass, plastics, toners, batteries, electric motors, condensers, printed circuit boards, etc.
For picture tubes removed from TV sets and monitors and for refrigerating and freezing appliances, cross-border transfer is provided, as Slovenia does not have the appropriate facilities for treatment of these WEEE groups. By doing so, we ensure that such waste is treated and recycled in an effective and proper way.
The amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment is increasing annually. Besides these alarming quantities, the problem also lies in hazardous substances contained in such waste equipment, i.e. substances causing ozone layer depletion: lead, mercury and cadmium, which can have a negative impact on the environment and human health.
End users of electrical and electronic equipment are willing to recycle it when it becomes waste. But due to lack of information on recyclable waste and locations for collecting such equipment, it often ends up among mixed municipal waste or at wild landfills. Disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment in the wrong place can cause soil pollution with toxic substances harmful to animals and humans.
It is therefore important to ensure that individual parts or components are not removed from waste electrical and electronic equipment.
WEEE can be disposed of free of charge at the following locations:
- in a collection centre with your local public service provider in the area of municipal waste management,
- in a store - upon purchase of a new appliance,
- during WEEE collection campaigns,
- at a ZEOS collection facility.
