EKOLAMP ensures the take-back of more than 4400 stationary collection points and covers more than 3,000 municipalities with mobile collection. Electro equipment is gathered together at the collection points in suitable collection vessels which, once filled, are transported to so-called consolidation points and from there to recycling at specialised processing companies.
Recycling – lamps:
Lamps are recycled on a processing line which meets all the required standards. The lamps pass through a system of crushers and grinders, from where the material is transported to the section of nets and separators and from where individual sorted material components are discharged.
Materials resulting from recycling for further use: ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals, metal mercury, glass.
Recycling companies manage to utilise more than 90% of the amount of lamp material every year. (The legal quote is 80%).
Recycling – electro equipment:
The reason for recycling electro equipment is primarily the content of secondary raw materials. Electro equipment is processed separately and, depending on the type, are recycled on semi-automatic recycling lines or are dismantled manually. Usable materials are subsequently additionally sorted and cleaned according to the requirements of end customers. Waste materials are passed on to persons responsible for disposal.
Materials acquired from recycling for further use: ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals, glass, plastics
Recycling companies manage to utilise more than 90% of the material. (The legal quota is 70%.)
