Eco-happening "Play, sing and recycle E-waste"

Playing, singing and recycling e-waste is the big eco happening that took place on May 29, 2016 at the City Park of "Shell", in order to promote the proper handling of electrical and electronic waste and raise public awareness about the need for selection and recycling of this type of waste.

The event was organized within the project "E-waste creates opportunities", implemented by the Center for Climate Change and financed by the US Embassy in Skopje. The event was attended by students from several primary schools in Skopje who, with a variety of entertainment programs on the topic of electrical and electronic waste, sent a message to the public on the manner of handling this type of waste and the negative impacts on the environment.

In the frames of the project "E-waste creates opportunities", 5.085 kg of electric and electronic waste were collected, for which taking and proper handling during the whole school year was taken care of Elkolekt Doo Skopje.

In order to motivate the schools that delivered e-waste within this project, Elkolekt provided valuable prizes - 11 printers. Also, Elkolekt will continue to collect e-waste from containers that are placed in schools within this project and in the future.
