Recycling of old electronic devices
For the development of process technology, our specific know-how about preparing primary resources was a valuable impulse. From the very beginning the optimal recovery of resources contained in old electronic devices was just as important as the secure disposal of dangerous substances. Since then we have recycled more than 500,000 tons of old electronic devices. The applied processes have been constantly developed and improved. Currently, we recycle about 4,000 tons of old electronic devices per month – thus, we are one of the most efficient recycler of this industry.
WEEE / Elektro G
We provide you with a competent contact person who will work with you to gather all necessary information and data of your company and enter it into the EAR system. As a matter of course, our service includes all brands and types of devices from private households (B2C) and other sources (B2B). Moreover, necessary updates and adjustments will be carried out by our competent and reliable team as well.
We offer different options to cover guarantees that are protected from insolvency (trust agreements by an escrow holder, lawyer and notary or by a collective guarantee system). Electrocycling will carry out the calculation of the necessary guarantee amount and the collecting of all necessary documents. We monitor all relevant deadlines and update you on possible guarantee adjustments.
We gather and document continuously all of your processes in accordance with ElektroG, from the collecting order to the recycling job. The data will then be arranged in the required formats. We also carry out reports to the EAR. Upon request we will, as a matter of course, transmit the data in the agreed-upon format directly to you as well, in case you need them for evaluation purposes.
The reporting (in accordance with ElektroG) includes inter alia:
- Reporting to the EAR concerning the quantity of old devices picked up from waste management utilities under public law
- Reporting of device-related take-backs; reporting concerning the quantity of reused, materially-recycled and recycled old devices (transparent volume flow record)
- Requests -in due time- of the actual quantities placed monthly on the market
- Reporting -in due time- to the EAR, reporting of the quantity of taken back old devices (commercially used devices)

Deletion of data / Data carrier recycling
Hard disks, memory cards, flash memories, mobile phones, magnetic tapes, floppy disks, personal computers, tablets etc. can contain sensitive data and information. Especially for personal data exist specific regulations in accordance with the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz-BDSG). Electrocycling provides its customers with a system that guarantees data security from the collection to the deletion of data. No access to the data will be possible at any time. The secure deletion of your data will be confirmed with a certificate.
We provide lockable containers for collecting the different data carriers. For transport purposes, we have locked vehicles and our staff will be instructed in accordance with the data security regulations. Until the liquidation, the data carriers will be stored in monitored and locked areas at Electrocycling.
For the liquidation of data we use different shredding machines (as required with the highest security level (level 7) in accordance with DIN 66399-2). The data will be irretrievably liquidated by shredding and grinding the data carriers (in accordance with §3 (5) (5) BDSG). Contained metals like aluminum, copper, iron will be segregated and afterwards melted in metal smelters.
Upon request, we also delete your data carriers with certified software.
To provide you with a confirmation, we set up data deletion certificates with all the information about the collection location and the disposal.
