Problem

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.

Solution

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.
