St John’s Walmer in the Diocese of Port Elizabeth held their first parish E- waste collection on the 21 of March 2015. Tim Douglas-Jones who was part of this nature- caring initiative says the day started at 12 midday and the turnout was good and had a positive response which was encouraging.
They worked with MicroDoctor, an initial computer company that has interest in e- waste who assisted them in orchestrating the waste. The day ultimately was a success as they had a full bakkie load of waste on Monday the 23rd of March 2015 which was then carted off to recycling.
St John’s in Walmer will have another E-waste collection very soon, look out for the dates and times.
