Dispose of electronic waste the right way. Society struggles enormously with waste problems and especially illegal dumping. Electronic waste (E-waste) on its own creates a whole new problem due to the high levels of toxicity and the adverse impact it has on nature and humans.
E-waste usually consists of easily recyclable materials, such as plastic and glass, as well as small amounts of toxic materials that can include lead, cobalt, silicon, mercury and arsenic. Electronic waste can be old computers (laptops), photocopiers, printers, radios, projectors, televisions, telephones (smartphones and tablets), keyboards, scanners, etc.
Hessequa Municipality wants to give the residents the opportunity to get rid of their electronic waste free of charge and safely. Bring your e-waste to a stall in front of the Riversdale Library on 6 October 2022 for collection. Visit your nearest Hessequa Library for more information and where to hand over e-waste.
PS: The next open day is planned for 20 December 2022 in Stilbaai. The rest of the towns’ dates will follow and will be communicated to the public timeously.
