Excursion to Recover-E (at SiSo, Almere)
E-waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams worldwide. In the Netherlands annually 1 million working places are replaced by new ICT hardware. As business, organizations and private users of ICT equipment, selling, donating or simply disposing of our old or aging products typically marks the end of their use. But have you ever thought about what happens with these products after that? Recover-E® is a shared responsibility program that is firmly rooted in the circular economy, the products and the materials they contain can remain valuable and reusable for as long as possible. By involving everyone from product owner and user, to recoverer and recycler in this approach, there is no waste. Instead, we can increase transparency in the chain by encouraging each player to contribute to and take responsibility for the solution. In this way, everyone has a shared responsibility for the highest shared benefits.
In an interactive workshop Recover-E will give an introduction of its model and how it is rooted in the Circular Economy. In separate groups you will have a tour in the refurbishment facility, you will practice a ‘refurbishment’ yourself and we will have discussions on how the Recover-E model can be applied in a circular procurement strategy for ICT equipment.
