Also good for the circular economy
Recycling is also crucial to preserve our stocks of raw materials because they are not inexhaustible.
So how does recycling help exactly? The more electric and electronic waste we collect, the more valuable components waste processing companies can recycle. Did you know that electronic and electric devices contain such valuable elements as gold, silver, palladium, etc. which would otherwise have to be mined? Recycling means less mining is required because we’re simply reusing these raw materials time and again. This principle is urban mining. That is why it is important to collect as many broken laptops, computer screens, printers, mobiles, refrigerators, lamps and fixtures as possible. With Recupel Pick-up there is now an easy way for SMEs to discard their e-waste.
