Reduce. Reuse. Recycle

BACKGROUND

Through the years, electronic waste management in Nigeria has been performed in manners that pose
significant threat to human life and the ecosystem. Hazardous and non-hazardous electronic waste (e-waste),
after being stripped of some components, is burned in open fires and discarded at makeshift dump sites,
causing considerable damage to the surrounding ecosystem. Useful components are then exported to foreign refineries. thus relinquishing local employment and empowerment opportunities.
