Migration to digital and the elimination of pops* in Cameroon: prevention is better than healing

Cathode-tube televisions will soon be out-of-date, and risk, through their accumulation in landfill sites and other depositories, contaminating the water table with the chemical products they release.

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has set the date of June 15, 2015 for the migration to digital for its member-states. If the move from analogic to digital has expanded the transmission zone to enlarge TV audiences, it still represents a real environmental problem in Cameroon. Clearly, the solution has yet to be found, as we still are unclear how Cameroon will manage the important amount of waste created following the removal from service of so many devices. In reality, 75% of the 660,000 television sets that will without a doubt be thrown away will generate about 10,000 equivalent tons of CO2 and 70,000 m3 of waste.

With the goal of reducing the probability of the creation, at the national level, of large landfills full of out-dated and polluting devices, CECOSDA has implemented a social communications strategy based on awareness activities with the media and electronic device repair services on the question. The messages communicated during these activities aimed at:

  • Encouraging users to change their consumption behaviours by repairing their devices rather than changing them;
  • Encourage users, during the shift away from analogic, to purchase decoders rather than throwing away their cathode-tube TVs;
  • Get repair services to increase their awareness of their role in the elimination process of POPs found in electronic devices.

These solutions, which seem pertinent, are part of the Cameroonian reality. In reality, as much as it would be appropriate to encourage users to take their old electronic devices to recycling centres rather than to a landfill, the lack of these types of structures in Cameroon makes this almost impossible.
