Donation to different Cooperatives of Electronic Waste Recyclers
The company collaborates with recycling associations and cooperatives, which receive electronic waste, if possible, some are recovered, and if it is not, they ensure the correct disposal of this type of waste, such as: personal computers or PC (including central unit, mouse, and keyboard), monitors, printers, photocopiers, scanners and phones.
To recycle and minimize waste. To this end, the safety and hygiene sector carried out recycling training for all personnel.
An especially important point in these trainings was to carefully distinguish the colors of the recycling, to know what kind of products should go in each container, and to differentiate the materials from which some containers or products that we use daily are made of. As a result of these, different waste containers were placed in strategic points of the company, to ensure its correct use.
