E-Waste & The Circular Economy
As E-waste solution and management service provider in Hong Kong, the role of being a recycler enriched ALBA IWS to passionate in turning waste back to the production-cycle and participate in the circular economy of an electric equipment product. From the collection to reproduction of the second-hand materials or the step up on refurbishment & donation, we aimed to minimise the possibility to treat the material as waste and send the waste to landfill. The most valuable element is the education from education in view gallery, treatment line tours. The knowledge could convince people of the importance of waste reduction and reuse.
