An NGO spearheads e-waste recycling in Lebanon

Source: The Hindu, Date: , 2019

In the basement of a building in Jounieh, north of Beirut, some end-of-life electronic devices are piled on the ground, while others are neatly packaged and placed on shelves. The basement is the nonprofit Ecoservís headquarters, where electronic waste treatment, a long and complex process that includes dismantling, packaging and sending waste to recycling plants, is taken very seriously. Two specialized technicians, equipped with masks and gloves, work carefully to sort the multiple components of objects such as computers and radios ó an essential step towards recycling e-waste.
