Samsung one of the leading brand in the world and consumes the entire market of shipping the Smartphone in the world about 62% of total consuming of Smartphone have been tackled from Samsung. We could say that Samsung could be that company who must to do something about the e-waste recycling, as they are the leader of the market. So keeping that fact into mind Samsung Electronics South Africa announced a partnership with an e-waste company to encourage the consumer to do something about the garbage and also encourage them to dispose the electronic good with a responsibility. The program holds about 18 collecting stores all over the country to proper dispose the e-garbage or using the Desco/ Samsung bin situated at the end of the stores. This could prove a good move as companies know that their business will not last long if this problem to our environment has not stop. So many firms have taking interest to recycle their old and damaged product to properly restore or dispose them.

Published on a News source “Items that can be recycled include: mobile phones, IT equipment and household appliances. The reason for this is that there is a rise in volumes of electronic waste with a growing need to ensure these items do not end up in landfills. The recycling campaign aims to collect an estimated 3 tons per month, per bin, during the campaign period.

After this much awareness, there are 20 to 50 metric ton of e-waste have been coming into world every year from all over the globe. Also this move from Samsung could also generate many Jobs in green economy because figure like 20 to 50 metric ton needs a huge plant to process the garbage and plant will need engineers and machinery so there will be a golden opportunity for people and companies too.
