WEEE Collections for free in aid of Dar tal-Providenza
WEEE Malta is taking part in this year’s European Week for Waste Reduction from the 19 to 27 November. The aim of the European Week for Waste Reduction is to put forward the concept of waste prevention, reuse and recycling during one week, by coordinating awareness-raising actions organised by a variety of actors.
WEEE Malta has launched an awareness campaing encouraging people of all ages to dispose of their electronic waste in a proper way.
To facilitate matters, WEEE Malta has introduced a FreePhone number whereby residents from all Malta and Gozo can call on 8007 4444 and WEEE Malta officials will service a door to door WEEE collection for free. Electronic Waste can vary from a used washing machine to a laptop, vacuum cleaner to a toaster, anything that works with a plug or batteries like small electronic toys.
As part of its ‘Social Corporate Responsibility’, WEEE Malta is donating €1 to Dar Tal-Providenza for every waste electric and electronic equipment collected, capped at €10,000.
WEEE Malta will be receiving calls from 15 to 24 November from 8am till 5pm. WEEE Collections will be made from the 21 to 28 November according to localities split into five areas in Malta and two in Gozo.
