Our objectives

We work every day to maximise the results of recycling

The activities of Appliances Recycling S.A. aim at maintaining and improving the quality of the natural environment, to utilise natural resources prudently and rationally, and to protect human health.

 

The primary goal of the company is to meet the national targets set by European and Greek legislation and to control the cost of Alternative Management of WEEE.

 

National targets include separate household collection of at least 4 kg of WEEE on average per inhabitant per year and specific rates regarding the degree of recovery, reuse and recycling of WEEE, ranging from 50% to 80%, as a minimum, of average weight per appliance (depending on the category of the equipment). The company's efforts are ongoing so that every year the national targets are not only met but exceeded.

 

The new European directive, which was incorporated into Greek law by May 2014, sets by 2016 the quantity that is required to be collected by  and recycled by each Member State at 45% of the average weight of appliances placed on the market in the previous preceding years. By 2019, this figure should reach 65%, while the qualitative objectives increase correspondingly by 5%.

 

Nothing can be achieved without the citizens’ systematic involvement. The ultimate goal of Appliances Recycling S.A. in terms of communication is that all citizens should recognise the environmental value of recycling electrical appliances and take responsibility.
