Every year 400 milion new TVs and monitors are sold worldwide. To prevent the old ones from accumulating in landfills and at the same time to exploit their material potential – the sorting and recycling of electronic waste is of great importance to all of us!
The compliance scheme ASEKOL has been taking care of WEEE (including TV) collection and it has been ensuring the handover of WEEE for recycling since 2005. It has been operating in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland.
The take back and subsequent recycling system is the main principle of circular economy that contributes to sustainibility – turning old into new!
