What happens with all the discarded electrical and electronic equipment that Recupel collects?

When you say goodbye to an e-appliance after long and reliable service, it still has a fascinating journey ahead of it. Recupel collects, sorts and recycles. This video walks you through the process. Follow the guide!

Recupel collects discarded electrical and electronic appliances (the Recupel contribution serves to finance this process). First of all we look at which appliances can still be used. Those end up in a re-use shop, to which of course you can also go directly with your usable things.

In this film you’ll discover how we process appliances that have definitively reached the end of their service life. For example, did you know that up to 300 grams of gold can be recovered from 1 tonne of mobile phones?
