Press Release issued May 18, 2020: The latest report on the Worldwide Electronic Waste (E-Waste) Recycling and Disposal market Report is the more professional in-depth of this market is providers the status and forecast, categorizes, market size (value & volume) by type, application, and region.
Berrien County residents have an extra chance to get unneeded electronic items recycled for free Wednesday. Berrien County Parks Director Jill Adams tells WSJM News Green Earth Electronics Recycling in St. Joseph will stay open later than usual so people can drop off items. They’ll take anything with a cord or that runs on batteries. Adams says it’s better to dispose of those items in this way for multiple reasons. “All electronics contain things like plastic, metal, glass, and other recyclable materials, but some electronics also contain hazardous components such as lead or mercury,” Adams said. “So keeping these materials out of the regular waste stream is good for environmental health as well as public health.”
The package includes the much-awaited detailed rules under the Taxonomy Regulation relating to climate change mitigation and climate change adaptation. Some sections in the draft rules are missing from the final rules and there is a new timeline for further work.
Final amendments to existing rules under the Solvency II Directive, the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD), MiFID II, the UCITS Directive and the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), to incorporate sustainability considerations, are included in the package.
