Only 17.4% of 2019 e-waste was collected and recycled, out of 53.6 million metric tons of waste generated in the world last year. But electronic waste are not monsters, they can potentially become, if disposed of incorrectly or dispersed in the environment, because they became a real 'poison' for the environment.
Since 2018, the Weeen Forum has launched and promoted the international day - on October 14 of each year - of e - waste to promote the awareness that correctly recycling this waste is a great tribute to Nature and especially the circular economy and environmental sustainability
Last year AMIU Genova Spa together with Don Bosco Institute took part to the event within the activities of FORCE H2020 Project.
The Waste Management Company is not only collecting WEEE but fostering Circular Economy through EU, local and international projects (Weeenmodels Life+ project was completely dedicated to WEEE and EEE).
Efforts of all local players are confirmed by Italian National WEEE Consortium (CDC RAEE) data: per capita collection in Liguria is 7,62 kg showing a positive trend 2018/2019 of +14,45%
