What are electronic products


From lawn mowers to toasters to cell phones, computers and cameras: Every electrical or electronic device contains valuable raw materials that can be reused after recycling.


Benefits of recycling

In the past or now: the careless throwing away of electronic waste is extremely problematic. Photocopiers, for example, contain carcinogenic selenium and the plastic housings of computers often contain flame retardants, i.e. harmful dioxins are released into the air when they are burned. When recycling by the Swico and SENS organizations, the devices are professionally dismantled, the components containing harmful substances are separated and finally disposed of separately and in an environmentally friendly manner. In addition, the raw materials can be reused in new cell phones, cameras, screens and other devices. So-called spice metals such as indium are also contained in electronic (electronic) scrap and can be reused thanks to recycling.
