Electronic Recycling company in New Zealand

Electronic recycling is more than just reusing materials.
Recycling electronic recycling not only diverts poisonous metals and compounds from landfills, it provides a means by which materials can be recovered and reintroduced into the manufacturing process. In short, recycling reduces waste and lowers dependence on removal of raw materials.

Recycling also saves on energy
There is a enormous energy saving when generating secondary raw materials compared to primary raw materials. For example, recycling steel into a secondary raw material uses 74% less energy than the production of the primary product. Recycled Aluminium uses 95% less, Copper 85% less, Lead 65% less and Plastics 80% less – it's a success, success situation – we protect precious resources, divert usable materials from landfill and conserve energy all at the same time!

Recycling needs to evolve to our lifestyles
We've been recycling products in one way or another for thousands of years, it's only in recent decades that the concept of ‘disposable goods' has reached all-time highs, making the subject of ‘conservation' of dominant importance. What is new is the need to familiarise recycling methods and actions to keep up with our lifestyles and technological progressions.
