Environ 2017 Recycling Initiative

Calling all unused phone and laptop chargers: Take the road to recycling with us at Environ 2017!

Do you have an unused phone charger or laptop charger? Studies have shown that many millions of unused chargers are thrown away every year. Electronics like these include chemicals that are toxic to air, water and soil: causing pollution.

We invite you to bring along your unused phone charger or laptop charger and we will recycle it for you. Every single item recycled counts and together we can make a big difference. In addition will be the opportunity to win a prize!

Bring your unused charger along to the Environ 2017 Registration desk and the ESAI team will give you a ticket to enter our competition. You could win a prize and have that feel good feeling knowing that the unused charger is going to be re-used.
