Here’s how you can properly and responsibly dispose your E-waste

Boosting its E-Waste Zero environmental program, Globe calls for customers to participate in the responsible disposal and recycling of electronic wastes.

Through this, Globe, together with select malls, schools, offices and other partner organizations across the country collaborated to open DENR-accredited Treatment, Storage, and Disposal facilities where the public can donate and surrender their old, non-working electronic devices for proper handling and recycling.

There are currently 100 bins placed in different collection points nationwide for the said program. The said bins can accommodate mobile phones, IT accessories including mouse, earphones, and speakers, Internet and WiFi modems and routers; cable wires, batteries, circuit boards, CDs /DVDs, and other small electronic devices.

Bigger items such as computer sets, IT servers, and electronic network equipment (antennas, transmitters, etc.), and home appliances (washing machine, oven, refrigerator, and the like) may be requested for pick up.

Last year, the E-Waste Zero effort of Globe collected and responsibly disposed over 250,000 kilograms of e-waste.

Since 2014 when the program started, Globe has managed to gather more than 1.4 million kilogram of electronic waste that were delivered to Globe’s partner Treatment, Storage, and Disposal (TSD) facilities, namely Total Environment Solutions – Asset Material Management Philippines (TES-AMM) in Pasig City, and Maritrans Recycler, Inc. in Cebu. E-wastes are segregated to recover plastic materials, electronic components, glass, and precious metals but the final recycling process is done in TES-AMM’s facility in Singapore.

To join the movement and to properly discard your electronic wastes at home, visit any of the participating Globe stores nationwide or request for free door-to-door pickup. Check out the E-Waste Zero tab on Globe’s sustainability page for the list of drop off areas.
