ERP Ireland is delighted to be working together with the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications, Mywaste Ireland and WEEE Ireland to launch a national awareness campaign to promote the reuse, repair and recycling of electrical waste. We are committed to continuing and extending our communications strategy, working with all stakeholders, to raise public awareness, educate and profile the importance of responsible reuse, repair and recycling of electronic items.
Electrical waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the world. The UN estimate that in 2019, over 24.5 million tonnes of small e-waste were produced worldwide. The reuse, repair and recycling of electronic waste not only saves valuable natural resources, but also reduces the environmental harm of e-waste and supports our transition from a linear to a circular economy.
