An e-waste disposal day will be held on Saturday 13 October for residents in the east of Pretoria to get rid of electronic devices and appliances they no longer need.

Ward councillor Siobhan Muller said the e-waste disposal day would allow residents to bring old laptops, computers, heaters, fridges, washing machines, kettles and any other electronic waste.

A report by Green Cape revealed that the country produces approximately 322 000 tons of electronic waste annually.

E-waste is the recycling of old computers, monitors, old toasters, fridges, batteries and old phones and other appliances.

With this in mind, Muller has decided to organise an e-waste day in collaboration with Waste Group.

“Pretoria has a recycling problem altogether. The aim of this day is to make e-waste recycling accessible to people who do not know where to take their old electronics and appliances,” said Muller.

“Our dumps are overburdened and e-waste is generally a problem to take anywhere.”

The e-waste day will start at 09:00 to 12:00 at the Atrium centre on the corner of Glenwood and Ingersol roads in Lynnwood Glen.

“Residents are urged to bring their e-waste to the school and at the same time get the much-needed information on how they can make recycling a daily activity,” said Muller.
