What is E-Waste?

What is e-Waste?

The term e-Waste or Waste of Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) covers all types of Electrical & Electronic Equipment (EEE) that have been discarded.

Mobile e-Waste specifically refers to any waste generated from SIM-based devices such as feature phones, smartphones, tablets & phablets along with chargers & accessories.

Mobile devices have to be properly disposed when they are no longer in use. The materials are not biodegradable & contain hazardous components that could harm your health & pollute the environment.

Through proper recycling process, over 90% of the materials used in mobile devices & accessories can be recovered.

Extended Producer Responsibility

In addressing the e-waste issues, Malaysia will introduce the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) programme. EPR is a product and waste management system of which manufacturers are responsible for the environmentally safe management of their products (take-back, recycling and final disposal) when they are no longer useful or discarded.

In order to complement the EPR initiatives in Malaysia, MCMC as the regulator for the communication and multimedia industry has initiated an industry joint recycling programme on discarded mobile devices. Mobile e-Waste: Old Phone, New life is MCMC’s response to the Resolution 79 adopted in World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly (WTSA 12) in November 2012. Resolution 79 invites its Member States to take all necessary measures to handle and control e-waste in order to mitigate the hazards which arise from used telecommunication/ICT equipment.

Volunteers planting the future

Volunteers are making the world a greener place.

By NATALIE HENG star2green@thestar.com.my

WADING knee-deep through thick mud under a sweltering sun, with your hands covered in muck, probably isn’t a typical way of spending a weekend. There must be some explanation, however, to the rising number of people who are doing just that.

Operating as a mini army of volunteers, these tree planters would car-pool their way to various sites in Selangor and proceed to plant hundreds of tree seedlings in the ground.

Flush away the problem

By TAN CHENG LI star2green@thestar.com.my

Big plans are ahead to reduce sewage contamination in Sungai Klang.

EFFLUENT from sewage treatment plants has been singled out as a major river polluter. Just by sheer numbers alone, sewage treatment plants make up 49% (10,025 facilities) of the total number of water pollution sources found in the country.

In comparison, manufacturing industries make up 44.5% (9,069 sources), according to the Environmental Quality Report 2010 by the Department of Environment.

Lake of filth: The Sri Johor flood detention pond in Bandar Tasik Permaisuri in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, not only holds excess water, but plenty of trash, too.
