美國環保署發佈4月6日至4月12日為全國回收行動電話週
發佈日期 :2009-06-05

  美國環保署發起回收行動電話週是為了嘗試讓整個4月都能變成世界地球日。46412這一週是美國環保署新推行「e-回收計劃」與引導行動電話製造業、零售業與提供相關服務的業者了解回收行動電話的重要性其中一個重要的環節。


 


  美國環保署資源保育及回收辦公室的主任Matt Hale提到當世界地球日接近的時候民眾就會開始思考,自己能夠做些甚麼來讓地球恢復到正常的樣子,回收行動電話就是一個非常好的方式來保育現有的資源以及能夠創造一個綠色的地球。


 


  為了慶祝世界回收行動電話週,這個計畫的參與者包含了好幾個國家的業者,包括有AT&TSamsungSprintT-Mobile Verizon Wireless,而推廣內容是利用促銷、競賽或兌換贈品的方式進行。這些參與業者將要提供給消費者店內與線上這兩種回收方式。


 


  在2007年廢棄行動電話的回收率只有10%,美國環保署鼓勵消費者提高國家廢棄行動電話的回收率。回收或再使用舊的行動電話不僅能夠省能源還能避免有用的資源被掩埋掉。行動電話與PDA是用貴金屬銅以及塑膠製成。回收或再使用這些物品不僅保存了現有的資源還能避免空氣汙染與水汙染還有製造業在萃取材料的時候產生出的溫室氣體。如果在美國有1億支廢棄行動電話被回收的話產生出的能源將足夠讓18500戶家庭使用一年之久。


 


  捐贈行動電話與PDA也對社區有益處。事實上現有的捐贈行動電話的回收計畫讓慈善團體得到更多的基金或者是提供給慈善團體減價售出。


 


  美國環保署的E-回收計畫間與電信製造商、零售業以及提供相關服務的業者的合作關係是非強制性,但能夠提供消費者更多的管道去捐贈或者回收它們使用過的電子產品。在2007年電子產品製造業以及零售業回收的店子產品數量達到4700萬磅的重量,其中以電腦跟電視為主。

EPA Challenges Americans by Launching National Cell Phone Recycling Week: April 6-12 100 million recycled cell phones save enough energy to power 18,500 homes


Release date: 04/02/2009

(Washington, D.C. – April 2, 2009) EPA is launching National Cell Phone Recycling Week as part of its efforts to celebrate Earth Day the entire month of April. The week, which runs from April 6 through April 12, is a joint effort between EPA’s Plug-In To eCycling program and leading cell phone manufacturers, retailers and service providers to increase national awareness about the importance of cell phone recycling.



“With Earth Day approaching, people are thinking about what they can do to give back to our planet,” said Matt Hale, director of EPA’s Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery. “Recycling your old cell phone is a great way to conserve resources and help make a greener world.



 To celebrate National Cell Phone Recycling Week, Plug-In partners across the country, including AT&T, Samsung, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, are introducing a series of in-store promotions, contests, and giveaways. The partners will provide in-store and online recycling opportunities for consumers.



With only 10 percent of unwanted cell phones being recycled in 2007, EPA is encouraging consumers to increase the nation’s cell phone recycling rate. Recycling or reusing cell phones helps the environment by saving energy and keeping reusable materials out of landfills. Cell phones and personal digital assistants (PDAs) are made of precious metals, copper, and plastics. Recycling or reusing them not only conserves these materials, it also prevents air and water pollution and reduces greenhouse gas emissions that occur during manufacturing and when extracting and processing virgin materials. If Americans recycled the 100 million cell phones that are no longer being used, enough energy would be saved to power more than 18,500 homes for a year. Donating cell phones or PDAs can also have social benefits for communities. In fact, many existing recycling programs donate cell phones that are in good working order to worthy charities, raise funds for charitable organizations, or provide them for discounted sale.



Plug-In To eCycling is a voluntary partnership between EPA and electronics manufacturers, retailers, and service providers to offer consumers more opportunities to donate or recycle their used electronics. In 2007, as part of their commitment to the program, retailers and electronics manufacturers voluntarily recycled more than 47 million pounds of electronics, mostly computers and televisions.
