Frequently asked questions

Once items are received, they are manually sorted by type and inspected to separate different components. Recovered materials, such as precious metals and plastics, go through processes like shredding and refining to achieve higher purity levels for reuse in manufacturing. Special attention is given to managing hazardous components like batteries and chemicals to prevent environmental harm.

The funds are used to the cover the intricate processes and handling costs associated with such disposing of waste. These include:

  • Transportation logistics to move the unwanted items to the recycling facilities
  • Salaries for the workers who handle the collection, sorting and processing
  • Specialised machinery used for disassembling and processing the waste components 
  • Safe disposal of non-recyclable components, especially those that are hazardous

All item requirements are listed above in the product description. There is a comprehensive list of what we do and do not accept.
