VerdeTech paves the way for e-waste recycling in Lebanon

37348371712 5d9d4c3eea zVerdeTech is the first full-service recycling and the only licensed institution by the Ministry of Environment in Lebanon working on e-waste management

It seeks to raise awareness of the urgency of action to reduce electronic waste and offers solutions to municipalities, corporations and individuals who share a common vision to protect the environment and live a greener and more sustainable life.

Through its innovative and efficient waste management techniques, it collects, sorts, stores and ships e-waste free of charge, helping to minimise its impact by adopting environmentally friendly practices and processes aimed at exacerbating the e-waste crisis in the country.

Lebanon has been suffering from a growing garbage and waste crisis for the last few years without any effective solution.

Part of this is due to the large quantity of unrecycled e-waste, which refers to all kinds of electrical and electronic equipment that are no longer in use, from televisions and refrigerators to small electronic tools and mobile phones.

E-waste is by far one of the most dangerous types of waste, and Lebanon generates approximately 50,000 tonnes of waste each year. If it is not disposed of properly, many health and safety concerns may arise.

In fact, beyond its huge impact on the environment, it contains harmful materials that put human beings’ health at risk.
