WEEE Recycling


OUR PROCESS

We specialize in both electronics recycling and asset disposition. Responsibly recycling e-waste and refurbishing electronics is critical to our environment, our health, and your brand.




    

    At Think Recycling, we know that any Electric or Electronic equipment that can no longer be used must be properly recycled without harming the environment. Starting from Collection, Storage, Dismantling and Recycling Processes, We ensure that all components are evaluated carefully and that the best recycling method is used for each type of material or component. Think Recycling Guarantees that no hazardous materials or components end up in landfills. We provide transparency in Tracking, Recycling and how hazardous materials are Disposed of. Our E-waste recycling service is perfect for all sorts of Electronic equipment.

    Mobile phone recycling at Think Recycling begins with the unloading of the units at TRPL’s recycling facility, where they are barcoded and updated in the system. Once the units have been unloaded, they are separated for recycling and refurbishing. Units destined for refurbishing are sent to TRPL’s refurbishing operations section, while the others are sent to the recycling section. Devices sent for refurbishing are further tested, and the ones with heavy wear and tear are sent back to the recycling section. Mobiles destined for recycling are first manually dismantled, where the lithium-ion battery, the flat panel/LCD, PCBs, and plastic are separated. All these separated components are then recycled in different sections, with the batteries going to the Authorised battery recyclers, the display going to the LCD recycling section, the printed circuit boards going to the PCB recycling section and the plastic going to the authorized plastic recyclers. After processing the recovered materials can be used again in a number of different industries, such as electronics, plating, jewelry, automotive, etc.


    PCB Recycling : Electronic printed circuit boards are complex assemblies that include numerous materials, and these materials require large quantities of energy and other materials to manufacture. They also include significant quantities of metals such as lead, copper, and nickel. While some of these are toxic in nature, all of them are valuable resources.

The recycling of electronic printed circuit boards begins with the circuit boards being passed through the Component Removal Machine. This machine automatically separates all the soldered components on the circuit board. It is then shredded. The output from these processing stages is the blank board and its components. The blank board primarily contains copper, which is smelted to obtain copper bars. Components are smelted to obtain pure metals. Non-recyclable waste is sent securely to Authorised TSDF.

    IT goods include various electronics ranging from desktops, laptops, servers, printers, scanners, copiers, etc. After these electronics items are received at Think Recycling's processing plant they are barcoded and updated in System. After barcoding, it goes through Initial Quality Check (IQC) to determine whether they should be recycled or refurbished. After segregating the units suitable for refurbishing they are forwarded to Think Recycling’s refurbishing section, while the remaining units are sent for recycling. The electronics sent for recycling are first segregated and then dismantled. During dismantling, the wire and cable components in the devices are taken out and sent for recycling. Next, the components like LCD, PCB, RAM, SMPS, and plastic parts are segregated and recycled separately. The remaining PCB components are sent for processing to the shredder. The plastic components are forwarded to authorized plastic recyclers.
