Following its success in 2019, the third International E-Waste Day is being held today to promote the correct disposal of e-waste throughout the world. International E-Waste Day has been developed by the WEEE Forum, an international association of e-waste collection schemes, and its members. It is used to highlight to consumers the importance of repairing or correctly disposing of their used appliances with the aim to increase re-use, recovery and recycling rates. Last year more than 100 organizations from nearly 50 different countries worldwide were involved and organized many different types of promotional activities, ranging from conferences and workshops, school and street collection to social media competitions and campaigns, and online guides and games.
