What Can Be Brought to a Computer Scrap Collection Point?

2021-02-22

One of the branches of our activity is the collection of computer and electronic scrap. What parts and components does our Krakow collection point accept and how does it operate? Why is it so important for electronic waste to reach the right and designated point for this purpose?

Electronic Scrap vs. Computer Scrap

Electronic scrap, otherwise known as e-scrap, e-waste, or electronic waste, is formally referred to as WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment). Electronic scrap comprises various types of broken, unused, or unwanted electrical and electronic devices that can be powered by electricity or batteries. Electronic scrap cannot be disposed of in regular municipal or community containers - it needs to be taken to specially designated points. Municipalities regularly organize e-waste collections for residents. The collection and transport of e-waste are handled by specialized companies like ours. On the other hand, computer scrap is a colloquial term for all waste, parts, and components of computers, which also fall under the broader category of electronic scrap.

Why is Computer Scrap a Special Kind of Waste?

Electronic and computer scrap should be taken to designated points for this type of waste, not to the communal container with other trash. Why? Computer parts and components contain many harmful and toxic substances, such as lead, mercury, cadmium, or chromium. Attempting to dismantle old electronic equipment or computers can release harmful substances into the environment. To avoid this, e-waste should be handled according to regulations: either taken to a collection point by yourself or, in the case of large quantities or sizes, entrusted to a specialized company.
