Project Manager’s address
With the E-cycle invitation in January 2016, the company ZEOS, ravnanje z električno in elektronsko opremo, d.o.o. started the all-Slovenian awareness-raising LIFE project entitled “E-waste management” which is partially financed from European funds and is also financially supported by the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning of the Republic of Slovenia.
The project is an upgrade of the »Slovenia WEEE campaign«, project that we carried out between 2011 and 2013. In June 2015 we also received the Best of the Best LIFE project award, which we are very proud for. Encouraged by this success, we applied with a new project to the LIFE foundation, aiming to encourage separate collection of small e-waste in local communities. Our application was successful and in December 2015 we signed a contract for a five-year project that will be implemented until the end of 2020.
The main activities of the project will be raising awareness and setting up over 400 street collection bins, 45 so-called green corners in shopping malls and collection and awareness raising in rural areas throughout Slovenia.
