(Business in Cameroon) - The Fondation Camerounaise de la Terre Vivante (FCTV - Cameroonian Foundation for Living Earth), a local NGO, just collected, with the support of the mobile company Orange Cameroun, a cargo of 13 tons of discarded mobile telephone devices. These old telephones now belonging to the electric and electronic waste family (DEE in French) will be recycled in France, we officially learned.  

As part of this operation to fight against DEE pollution, collection boxes will now be set up in the different branches of the mobile company Orange Cameroun. This company has been implementing since 21 February, an initiative launched by the Orange group, in partnership with the French NGO Emmaüs International, through its branch called Ateliers du bocage (Adb), whose partner in Cameroon is none other than Fondation Camerounaise de la Terre Vivante.

“We are proud that our commitment in terms of nature conservation is in direct line with the options taken by the public authorities who, in the case of Cameroon, have developed a national strategy to fight against electric and electronic waste (the infamous DEE)”, declared Samuel Ngondi Eboua, Direction of Institutional Relations at Orange Cameroun.
