Incentive pilot project in Spain expected to boost e-waste recovery rates

The CIRC4Life Project in collaboration with the City Council of Getxo, Spain has piloted a 12-month incentive program to increase recycling rates of waste electrical and electronic equipment. Special intelligent e-waste recycling bins with scannable codes were placed around the city where residents could drop off old mobile phones, tablets and more for recycling. Read how residents can scan the code and receive eco-credits that could go toward new purchases of electronic goods or donated towards planting new trees.
