On Tuesday, June 11, our director James Coghill and Andy Thomas, the co-founder of Holonics, went on ABC Radio Perth to talk all things e-waste and circular economy.
They answered questions such as How is e-waste defined. How well does Australia in terms of e-waste? How does WA compare to other Australian states?
James explained what are the free drop-off locations and how to find them.
Andy explains the ins and outs of the circular economy and why is it not sustainable to continue with the current extracting linear economy. You can learn about Phillips’ business strategy selling light as a service.
As of July, Victoria will be banning electronic waste from going to landfill and we are pushing for WA to do the same. You can sign our petition on Change.org.
