Old laptops, monitors, printers, mobile phones, refrigerators, lamps, etc.: every company, every organisation has a pile somewhere of no-longer-used electronic devices and appliances - some of which might actually even still work!
Usually, however, getting rid of them isn´t at the top of the long to-do list that has to be worked through on any given day. Where do you have to take them? Who might be able to come by and pick them up? And how much would that cost? In any event, it eats up time that you usually just do not have.
Happily, there´s now a solution for this problem: Recupel Pick-up a service provided by Recupel for SME's, organizations, etc.

Recycling for a circular economy
For those striving for a better world, electronic waste is a big plus. That may sound a bit counterintuitive, but it´s true: the more electrical and electronic waste we collect, the more valuable parts processing centres can recycle. Many devices contain elements (gold, silver, palladium, europium...) that would otherwise have to be mined from the earth the old-fashioned way. Thanks to recycling, we can use them again and again. And reusable devices simply get a second life. Hence the term ´circular economy´.
