On May 18, the old cell phone recycling bin was installed in University Of Seoul. Because of the Coltan, the material of cell phone, Gorilla’s habitate is being destroyed. Coltan is used as the facility of cell phone and notebook. So nowadays it is evaluated as valuable as gold and diamond. Therefore to gather the Coltan, people are destroying the Gorilla’s hesitation.
Also the World is competing to secure the metal resource. Developed countries are focusing on old materials and they extract the metal from old cell phone because it could be recycled and it could save the earth.
However Korea is turned over its system. Therefore we are incinerating old cell phone and it is causing the environment problem. However through this project, we collect the metal resource and they can save the environment.
Not only to protect the environment, but also to prevent the outflow of metal resource, the UOS students participate in the Urban Mining Project.
And it is very easy to join this project. Just put the old cell phone in the recycling bin. The recycling bin is placed at the Main Library, Student Hall, and University Center.
