Proper disposal of electronic waste.

Certain items such as li ion batteries have to be properly disposed. They cannot be disposed say, down our rubbish chutes for instance.

Found this awesome bin at Singapore Polytechnic, located near the ATM at Food court 5. Thought I would share this with you guys.

The whole system probably loses money and they don't actually separate the trash from generic trash anyway.

Smoking to get funding for your project is easy at a small scale, but at bigger scale the newspaper will have to talk about AHTC every day.

Nice! Will amend the first post to reflect this info from all
Do continue to share if you see any!

As for sticking it, there has been debate of putting threads at the top, as it may sometimes be overlooked by users. Undoubtedly it is a good thread to reference to. Will see what I can do

Actually, lots of place have this bin already. I think all the community club has one bin each.

Quoted from the starhub website 'There are currently 325 RENEW bins at 274 locations around Singapore. Do your part for the environment and recycle your electronic waste in RENEW bins at selected public access locations.'

We (PC Dreams) are already doing recycling of items with NEA for major shows.
If there is enough demand, we can put up recycling corners within all our 8 outlets islandwide.
Let's see what is the response now. Currently we are only taking in items for recycling at our Bugis Junction Digital hospital outlet.

Anyone knows of any RENEW bins in the Sengkang/Punggol area? I looked at the Starhub website for the list of RENEW bin locations, and even though it said there is one in Lot One (I lived in the West before moving house), I couldn't find it.
