Laptop recycling is different from regular old computers and other IT-equipment. For example, each notebook has a battery and a TFT screen. And these batteries are a substantial environmental hazard. And the TFT screen contains hazardous substances such as mercury. That is why recycling of notebooks is carried out separately from all other old computers. Furthermore, notebooks contain many valuable metals that can be re-processed. That is why defective notebooks are quite often exported to third world countries. To prevent this from happening, companies that process depreciated comput
er hardware, are now required to obtain the WEEELABEX certification. When you have notebooks picked up for recycling it is advisable to first check whether you are dealing with a company that has obtained the WEEELABEX certification. This provides a 100% certainty that everything will be recycled in a legally responsible manner and within the Netherlands.
After we receive a notebook at IT-recycling, the first thing we do is remove the battery to have it recycled by an expert in battery recycling.
