WEEE Ireland is asking households, farms, businesses, schools & community groups to redouble their eWaste recycling efforts.

 It is estimated that 60 million tonnes of e-waste will be generated across the planet in last year.

Personal devices, like phones, tablets, TVs  and laptops, account for around of that total.

There are over 600 free recycling points nationwide at local authority recycling centres and electrical retailers
