Dubai - Always a helpful place, ACE is helping visitors take conscious measures towards a greener future this World Environment Day.
The home improvement destination is collaborating with Green Land Recycling, a local waste recycling management company, to recycle electronic and electrical waste, also known as e-waste. This sustainable initiative launches on June 5, World Environment Day, and will be a permanent free service available to customers in Dubai.
What kind of e-waste does ACE offer to recycle?
ACE offers recycling of batteries as well as home and kitchen appliances. Those looking to recycle old batteries can do so at any ACE store in Dubai, while appliances can be dropped off at ACE in Dubai Festival City.
ACE accepts most batteries including alkaline, lead acid, primary lithium, lithium ion, nickel metal batteries, and zinc carbon. The only type of battery it is unable to accept for recycling are those with nickel cadmium in them.
The Dubai Festival City store offers recycling of all appliances including IT gadgets such as laptops and mobile phones, as well as home and kitchen electronics like kettles, toasters, microwaves, refrigerators, washing machines, and air conditioners. ACE also has plans to offer this service at its Festival Plaza store shortly.
The importance of recycling electronic waste
When conventionally disposed, e-waste makes its way to landfills where harsh temperatures unleash toxic chemicals into the air, damaging the environment as a result. These toxic chemicals also seep into the ground, polluting soil and groundwater, impacting land and marine life.
E-waste that is dropped off at ACE is collected, sorted, shredded and baled by Green Land Recycling, and sent to downstream vendors and manufacturers for further processing and reuse. Green Land Recycling also ensures that any hazardous materials collected are safely disposed of, following the Dubai Municipality’s guidelines.
Now in its 30th year in the UAE, ACE is actively offering solutions that help customers improve their homes and the environment around them. ACE takes great pride in its range of sustainable initiatives, making the UAE a greener place with customer support and eco-conscious partnerships.
