FY18 was yet another huge year for TechCollect, resulting in what we have worked out to be massive environmental savings.
Lifecycle assessment consultants Lifecycles recently undertook an independent third party assessment of the TechCollect program, evaluating environmental impacts across our supply chain. This included a thorough investigation of the collection, transportation, recycling and processing of e-waste across the TechCollect operation. The data and insights emphasise the benefits of reintroducing recycled materials into the manufacturing stream, compared to relying solely on virgin stock.
These insights show that recycling e-waste is the logical and responsible approach for the management of end of life products and materials.
