Scope:

Despite 66% of the world’s population being covered by e-waste legislation, only 20% of global e-waste is recycled each year. This means 40 million tonnes of e-waste end up outside of the waste infrastructure, and to help address this huge issue, the WEEE Forum launched the first International E-Waste Day in 2018. Organisations from across the world can get involved by organising activities on 14 October 2019 to unite in tackling the e-waste challenge.
