Redundant Telephony Equipment

As a business owner, you are legally required to recycle redundant telephony equipment in accordance with the WEEE Directive.

If you no longer want your used phone systems or  old office telephone handsets, system(s), cards, modules Mint Recycling can make a site visit, collect the items and recycle them in an environmentally responsible manner.

Why is it Necessary to Recycle your Redundant Telephony Equipment?

In Europe, the WEEE Directive, a regulation designed to dispose of used electronic goods in an environmentally-friendly manner, took effect in August 2005, so all electronic appliance manufacturers in the region must build a collection and recycling system for end-of-life electronic products.

The ‘Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment’ Directive (WEEE Directive) became law in January 2005. Old office telephones, systems, UPS batteries, computers, monitors, printers, etc., can no longer be disposed of at landfill sites. Instead, they must be recycled by a registered waste management company. Electrical waste emits lead and other hazardous toxins, which can result in a detrimental impact on the environment, which in turn has profound consequences for wildlife and human life.

Businesses must have a certificate of proof that their electrical waste has been disposed of and recycled by a registered waste recycler.
