Ellusion House to house Electronic Waste Collection
Environment Sustainability and Green Technology
In this project, we aim to curb electronic waste (e-waste) pollution and encourage proper disposal of large electronic waste (television, refrigerator, washing machine, etc) by providing house-to-house e-waste recycling service. The principal beneficiary is the environment, as electronic waste are recycled at proper channels into raw materials. This could avoid electronic waste which may contain toxic materials (mercury, lead, etc) being sent to landfill and causing pollution. The impact of this project could increase the nation’s e-waste recycling rate & leads to better quality of life.

Electronic waste (e-waste) is becoming a global issue because of tremendous growth of demands on electrical and electronic equipment and the disposal after use. Disposed E-waste sometimes cause health and environmental hazard (mercury, lead, etc) if they are not handled properly. Most of electronic waste can be reused, refurbished, or recycled.
We believe it is important to offer a new solution to this problem, which is by providing house-to-house e-waste recycling service at different area in Penang periodically. Collected electronic waste will be delivered to licensed recovery facility & process into raw material (gold, silver, copper, plastic, etc). We are looking to raise funds to make this project successful.
The principal beneficiary is the environment, as electronic waste are disposed correctly and recycled at proper channel into raw material. This could avoid electronic waste which may contains toxic material (mercury, lead, etc) sent to landfill and caused pollution. Besides, this project will raise the awareness of community in recycling electronics in proper channel.
We can measure the size of impact with indicators below. 1. Impact: More electronic waste are recycled at proper channel Indicator: Weight of electronic waste collected from household 2. Impact: Awareness raised in recycling electronic waste Indicator: Number of people supported the e-waste recycling service
The community: Sharing awareness with your friends on proper disposal & recycling of electronic waste. Contact us to recycle your large electronic waste! Corporate/Institution/Residence: Contact us to recycle your electronic waste!
