REPIC reached the important milestone of recycling more than three million tonnes of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (Weee) in the United Kingdom. To celebrate this significant step, Louise Grantham, REPIC’s chief executive, visited Gap Group (NE) facilities in Gateshead, the UK’s most recent fridge processing and recycling plant to undertake WeeeLabex certification.
«We are proud of our three million tonnes achievement – Grantham commented -. We also recognise that significant milestones are not achieved alone, but in collaboration with all our partners. Today is about celebrating success collectively and saying a huge thank you. At a time when the recycling of e-waste has never been of greater importance, it is important to recognise what can be achieved when we work collectively to improve standards, minimise losses from the system and maximise collection levels.»
