As technology is currently advancing at a rapid pace, electronic and electrical products are replaced over time with new and better ones, resulting in a rapid increase of their waste.
What are the main benefits of recycling electrical and electronic equipment?
1. It contributes to the protection of the environment from dangerous substances contained in them
2. It leads to the recovery, in special factories, of recoverable materials, such as metal, glass and plastic, which are reused in the production process, thereby saving energy and reducing carbon dioxide emissions
In recent years, we have learned about lamp recycling and how important it is for the environment.
It is a necessary step towards reducing pollution, but also for collecting materials for creating new products within society.
Why is it necessary to recycle lamps?
Firstly, we can achieve the environmentally sound management of mercury, which is a dangerous chemical element that must not be released into the environment.
On the contrary, by recycling lamps, we ensure its safe collection and full recovery, so that it may be reused in other products.
