WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, and is one of the fastest growing types of waste in the world, consisting of mobile phones, computers, monitors, washing machines, printers, scanners, games consoles, routers, medical equipment and more. These wastes contain harmful substances such as heavy metals and their disposal in landfills would seriously damage the environment and take up a lot of unnecessary space .WEEE contains a variety of precious and rare earth metals that are highly recyclable, and by reducing their size, they can be recycled efficiently, while protecting the environment and meeting environmental legislation.
The main components of WEEE include a wide range of plastics, circuit boards, metals etc. GEP Ecotech offers a range of twin and four shaft shredders that can easily meet the size reduction needs of WEEE by providing different sized screens to ensure a uniform particle size between 15 and 100mm.
