Electronic Waste (E-Waste) is a growing problem around the world. As technology continues to improve, consumers are regularly upgrading their personal and household electronics. With the purchase of a new one, the old is generally disposed of in landfills, which leaks toxic and poisonous chemicals into the soil and water causing environmental disasters. Learn more about E-Waste in this video.
SSIS will start a new recycling program with Vietnam Recycles to collect E-Waste. We encourage you to actively participate in our school’s recycling effort to create a cleaner, less polluted Vietnam. Bring us your used, broken or defective electronic devices to ensure proper environmental steps are taken to properly dispose and reduce E-Waste pollution.
- Mobiles and analog phones, cameras, and tablet
- Dead batteries
- TVs, Computers, CPU, fax machines, scanners, and photocopiers
- DVDs and CDs
- Electronic cables and chargers
- Go to Vietnam Recycles website for a full list
Green bins will be set up in the High school plaza at building C. The program will run for a month of Oct 2nd -31st, 2017. At the conclusion of our program, we will give all E-Waste to Vietnam Recycles. Depending on the success of this program, we will have a second drop off period in April.
With everyone’s participation, we are confident that we can do our part to help the environment and Vietnam.
