Managing and recycling electronic waste efficiently
Specialists dedicated to recycling used appliances
Industry and trade produce large volumes of electrical and electronic waste that cannot be disposed via regular channels. This includes a wide variety of devices, from used computers, monitors, printers and fax machines, refrigerators, freezers, air conditioning systems, light fittings, electronic tools, and devices such as drinks machines and cash dispensers.
Electronic waste often contains a large amount of dangerous and harmful substances, including heavy metals like lead, cadmium and mercury - so strict laws are in place to regulate the disposal of such substances. Within the European Union, the handling of electronic waste is governed by the EC Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and other regulations. In Germany, this Directive is implemented through the German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (Elektronikgerätegesetz - ElektroG).
Reliable take-back systems
The specialist companies in the ALBA Group offer one-stop services for the correct disposal and recycling of all types of electrical and electronic waste in a safe, environmentally friendly and legally compliant way. Public and commercial collection points are available throughout Germany. From these collection points, the waste is sent for initial processing, which includes the removal of harmful substances. This is followed by dismantling and further recycling.
