In an effort to ensure that obsolete ICT equipment (e-waste) is handled in a professional manner, Computers for Schools Uganda (CFSU) has collected e-waste from Deloitte Uganda Ltd for disposal in a professional manner. This is in addition to e-waste collected from DFID and different educational institutions in Uganda.
CfSU is working in partnership with WEEE Centre Kenya an organization handling e-waste in Kenya.
This is a campaign that has been slowed down by the low levels of awareness on e-waste management where the public attaches a lot of monetary value to their old equipment.
We are hopeful, as people get exposed, they will hand over their obsolete equipment to CfSU for safe disposal in an environmentally Sound manner.
