Jeffares & Green (Pty) Ltd Engineering and Environmental Consulting (J&G) hosted their annual E-waste (electric- and electronic-waste) Collection Drive in October 2015. The Port Elizabeth (PE) Office held their fourth E-waste Collection Day on Saturday, 10 October 2015, providing the general public with a convenient and accessible opportunity to drop-off any unwanted or redundant e-waste items for refurbishment, dismantling, recycling and as a last resort, responsible disposal. The PE Collection Day was held in partnership with MicroDoctor and Khanya Waste Services at the Greenacres Shopping Centre, supported by the Southern African E-Waste Alliance (SAEWA), the Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa (IWMSA) and The Waste Trade Company.
The PE Office received an amazing response from the public and managed to collect a total of 1.1 tonnes of e-waste.
J&G PE would like to express thanks to all members of the community who turned up to donate their old electronic goods and support this worthy green cause.
