E-Waste Collection and Recycling with Ecoserv

Electronic waste, or e-waste is especially harmful to the environment. The toxic substances built into electrical appliances can contaminate soil and groundwater in addition to polluting the air we breathe, with dire consequences on land and sea ecosystems.

In an effort to mitigate the harms of e-waste and encourage environmental stewardship, the UN Global Comapct Network Lebanon partnered with Ecoserv, a Lebanese non-profit organization, to collect e-waste from our participants and dispose of it safely. A few months after the launch of the project, we joined forces with Green Community, also a non-profit organization, to expand the initiative’s reach to North Lebanon.
