Code of Conduct

The spread of globalisation and the growing interconnectedness of the world has opened up a host of international markets that were previously unheard of. Unfortunately, the people working in the low-wage countries and raw material extraction areas that are sought after by the industrialised countries are not always treated fairly. Through media networking, however, this no longer remains hidden from all actors.

We resolutely oppose these abuses in order to uphold human rights and thus set an example for our employees and our customers at home and abroad.

Our corporate culture is characterised by open, free and equal treatment of all employees, business partners and other persons. You can view our complete Code of Conduct here:


Environment, climate and resources

In times when natural resources and thus vital raw materials are becoming scarcer, it is important to find an alternative that is in no way inferior to them in terms of quality.

Waste electrical equipment contains a significant amount and variety of these raw materials. It is of great importance to return the available (secondary) raw materials to the economic cycle.

Secondary raw material extraction therefore not only helps to secure raw material deposits for future generations, but is actively involved in the protection of primary raw material extraction.

With our work today, we are laying the foundation for the world of future generations and contributing to a conscious and careful use of natural resources.

The best for the environment

Our location on the edge of the Harz National Park is a constant reminder of the importance of environmental protection.

Climate protection

We at Electrocycling understand that climate protection is one of the most important global issues of our time, and are keen to make our contribution to that end.

Here is how it works

In the early 1990s, Electrocycling developed techniques and strategies to recycle waste electrical equipment with a minimum of manual labour and as much mechanisation as possible.

This process has been constantly optimised and adapted to changing WEEE. Electrocycling has now recycled over one million tonnes of WEEE at its plant.

It is necessary to be familiar with the material content and properties, as well as with the pollutants and impurities in the end-of-life appliances in order to make the right decisions in each processing step and to recover the raw materials used in the product, such as metals, plastics and glass, sorted by type.

Here is the process in detail:

Three-stage shredding – subsequent sorting


Electrocycling ranks as one of the most innovative companies in the field of WEEE processing in Europe.
