Poles have a problem with correctly identifying e-waste and do not fully know where to dispose of such used equipment, according to a study by the Zymetria research agency commissioned by RLG. 34 percent of respondents admitted that they had incorrectly disposed of their e-waste. Waste that most often ends up in the wrong place includes cables, chargers, and headphones. 

"It's the same with various types of shavers, curling irons, battery-powered toys, and other small appliances, which we'll be buying for Christmas soon," Monika Wyciechowska, an education marketing manager at RLG in Poland, said.

She pointed out that more than half of Poles do not know that old equipment cannot be thrown away with the five fractions, but must be taken to special collection points.
