How to conveniently dispose of computers and electronic products

If you have been wondering about what to do with your old and disused electronic items, fret not. Jurong-Clementi Town Council has teamed up with Alba E-Waste, a smart recycling firm to offer residents a hassle-free electronic product disposal service.

Did you know that according to a research conducted by the National Environment Agency, Singapore generates 60,000 tonnes of e-waste per year? Common types of e-waste in Singapore include computers, printers, fridges, washing machines and air conditioners. Proper recycling of e-waste is essential as electronics contain valuable raw materials such as precious metals like gold, silver, palladium and copper.

 According to the Global E-Waste Monitor 2020, an estimated 98 metric tonnes of CO2-equivalents were released into the atmosphere in 2019 from discarded fridges and air-conditioners, contributing about 0.3 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. In 2022 alone, 5.3 billion mobile phones were discarded as waste.
