When is International E-Waste Day?

International E-Waste Day is held each year on October 14th. This day strives to raise awareness around the problem of e-waste and encourage people to dispose of their electronics responsibly.

 At home, you can mark International E-Waste Day by recycling any old devices you no longer need, donating them to charity, or repurposing them for use in other applications.

If your device still works, many programs will take it off your hands and give it a second life – helping both the environment and those in need simultaneously.

On a larger scale, governments and businesses can also help reduce e-waste by creating better policies for managing electronic waste, such as providing more recycling centers or offering incentives to companies that recycle their products.

By taking steps to reduce e-waste, we can help protect the environment and ensure a sustainable future for generations.
