Responsible Electronic Waste Disposal in Belgium: An InPlace Guide

November 14, 2023

In our digital age, electronic devices have become an integral part of our lives. But what happens when these devices become outdated or break? In Belgium, responsible disposal of electronics is a crucial practice for environmental protection and recycling. InPlace offers a detailed look at how you can contribute to this essential process.

Understanding the Importance of Proper Disposal

Improperly disposed electronic devices can cause significant environmental damage. They contain harmful substances like lead and mercury that can pollute soil and water. Additionally, responsible disposal allows for the recovery of valuable materials, reducing the need for new resource extraction.

How to Dispose of Electronics in Belgium

Specialized Collection Points

Take your old or damaged devices to "Recyparks" or "containerparks" to ensure they are recycled or disposed of safely.

Return to Retailer

When you buy a new electronic device, the store should accept your old one, if it's similar to the new, at no extra cost.

Electronic Waste Management Companies

For large quantities or corporate disposals, specialized companies can be hired to collect and process electronic waste.

Public Awareness

Participate in education programs and campaigns about electronic recycling to stay informed about sustainable practices.
