Tips for recycling E-Waste
- Due to the hazardous materials contained in e-waste, dismantling of equipment should be left to the experts.
- Handle CFLs and florescent tubes with care to prevent breakage
- Handle TV screens and computer screens with care, since the glass contains lead in the case of Cathode Ray Tubes and mercury containing backlight lamps for LCD screens
- Take batteries and mercury containing lamps such as CFLs and florescent tubes to collection points at Woolworths, Makro and Pick n Pay (special containers at the store’s entrance normally). See www.reclite.co.za for a list of collection points.
