No way out for old or malfunctioned waste electronic appliances in shops and shopping malls? E-waste contains hazardous components that are harmful to the environment and human health if not properly treated or disposed of.  For instance, lead and mercury, which are usually found in electrical appliances and computers, may cause cognitive deficits in children, and damage the kidneys, liver and the neural, circulatory and reproductive systems. In addition, some WEEE contains CFCs and HCFCs, which destroy the ozone layer and contribute to global climate change.

The Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) organises the “Hong Kong Green Shop Alliance E-Waste Recycling Campaign” (Campaign), based on the two out of six aspects of environmental management proposed in the Hong Kong Green Shop Alliance (Alliance), and invites all the Alliance members take the initiatives to reduce municipal solid waste, reuse and recycle materials.

Apart from recycling, functional electronic items will be refurbished and donated to deserving families in Hong Kong to avoid wasteful disposal.
