Tackling electronic waste in Africa (April 2009)


In this podcast, we speak to Dr Kirstie McIntyre, HP Environmental Compliance Manager, Europe, Middle East and Africa, about the first results of a pilot project to tackle the problem of electronic waste (e-waste) in Africa.

The pilot project in Cape Town represented the main focus of this Africa-wide project with encouraging results. The facility processed approximately 60 tonnes of electronic equipment, generated an income of around €14,000 from February to November 2008 and created direct employment for 19 people. The project also seeks to incorporate informal processing activities that have proved highly effective in dealing with waste, by transforming them into sustainable and environmentally sound operations.
