I&M Bank Limited has entered into a partnership with Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Centre to promote the responsible disposal and recycling of electronic waste. This initiative is in line with local and international conventions on e-waste disposal. Under the partnership, I&M Bank will provide e-waste collection bins at its headquarters in Nairobi as a designated e-waste collection centre. WEEE Centre will then ensure that the electronic waste is disposed of appropriately and in an environmentally friendly manner. The partnership will extend to the bank’s branch network and the I&M Group in the future.

Gul Khan, I&M Bank Kenya CEO, noted that the bank’s e-waste management initiative aims to provide a convenient and environmentally friendly disposal solution. The partnership with WEEE Centre is expected to raise awareness of responsible e-waste disposal and the bank’s customers will be able to dispose of their unwanted or faulty electronics at designated e-waste collection centres.
According to WEEE Centre’s CEO, Bonnie Mbithi, technological advances have led to increased electronic waste generation, making responsible e-waste disposal a growing concern for the country. Through the partnership, the WEEE Centre will ensure that collected e-waste is handled and processed in accordance with applicable environmental regulations and guidelines.
