Recently in Europe a new standard for charging different devices was agreed. It’s USB Type-C. The full transition to the new format will take place in 2024. This will help reduce the amount of technological waste currently generated in the EU by 11,000 tonnes a year and save users money.
Although the law applies only to the EU, waste can be treated consciously in Ukraine as well. For those who are looking for a way to safely dispose of old chargers and gadgets, Waste Management Center works in Kyiv.
There are three ways to dispose of waste in the Waste Management Center:
- Bring in person in Kyiv to the address: Colonel Shutov St.,16 (Analitprylad plant);
- Send by Nova Poshta at your own expense;
- You can order garbage collection in Kyiv to your address. It is relevant for companies and those who have accumulated a lot of technological waste. In this case, illiquid waste will be collected without additional payment.
Electronic waste is toxic and contains a large number of hazardous substances: copper, lead, mercury, cadmium, nickel, PBDE and PCBs. Once in a regular landfill, they poison the environment and the people around them. The Waste Management Center is able to dispose of them safely.
