What happens to WEEE waste?
« on: July 15, 2016, 12:49:25 AM »
I am thinking about recycling some of my electronics, but I would like to know what happens to this type of waste. I like to know where my things go when I recycle them, as this information is important to me, so if anybody knows what happens to these products then I would very much like to know about it! Thank you.

If you use a company to deal with your WEEE then it will be recycled in accordance to very strict guidelines. This is also the case if you choose to take it to your local recycling bank, which could be a great thing to do, as it is one of the easiest choices that you have.

The items are stripped down as much as possible to separate the various different materials, most of which are then melted down and used in future applications. Not all WEEE is recyclable though - some of it can be toxic and/or combustable.

Could the metal be used in similar products to the product that it was recycled from, or does it only have limited use once recycled? I know that there are certain types of materials that are changed slightly when they are used again.
