Treatment and recovery of waste equipment

Raising awareness about proper management of waste electrical and electronic equipment influences the proper collection of waste equipment, which consequently allows further treatment and recovery.

All collected WEEE is treated and recycled in accordance with existing regulations and available permits. Treatment is provided for those WEEE groups for which appropriate technology is available in Slovenia, i.e. technology for the removal of housings, cables, glass, plastics, toners, batteries, electric motors, condensers, printed circuit boards, etc.

For picture tubes removed from TV sets and monitors and for refrigerating and freezing appliances, cross-border transfer is provided, as Slovenia does not have the appropriate facilities for treatment of these WEEE groups. By doing so, we ensure that such waste is treated and recycled in an effective and proper way.
