The collection of spent electronic and electric equipment was organized by 6 international companies (DTZ, JLL, Knight Frank, Kulczyk Silverstein Properties, Skanska and Stena Recycling). It lasted from 13th till 23rd April and 9 tons of electronic waste were collected. Arup joined the action after some time; it added 54 kg of waste to the general collection.
Thanks to recycling, 9 tons of electronic waste were reduced to 34 000 kg of CO2 emission – that is exactly how much will get to the atmosphere in result of the consumption of 9452l of fuel or how much the turned on 42-inch LCD TV will consume within 69 years and 2 months.
The action was held in 57 office buildings located in Warsaw, Katowice, Łódź, Poznań, Tricity, Wrocław and Cracow. Special containers were put in the buildings and all employees could throw their e-waste there. The means obtained from the sales will be intended for Maryna Falska Nasz Dom orphanage in Warsaw.
