Environcom launches WEEE facility

EnvironCom launches WEEE facility

EnvironCom has opened a £2 million waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) reprocessing facility in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

It has also launched a pan-European collection, reprocessing and remarketing service.

The company has installed machinery developed in Denmark that is capable of converting a domestic fridge into four separate recyclable materials in less than one minute and also contain and dispose of harmful CFC gases safely.

EnvironCom has also started a call centre to arrange for collection, while an IT system has been developed to record details and provide manufacturers details as evidence of destruction.

Chief executive officer Joseph Quigley said: We have evaluated and invested in state-of-the-art technologies and infrastructure to enable us to reprocess WEEE efficiently and effectively.

We have also researched and continue to research new markets for reprocessed materials, he said.
