WEECAM is a large-scale solution for the collecting, refurbishing and recycling of Waste of Electric and Electrical Equipment (WEEE).
WEEECAM's four missions are collecting, recycling, reinforcing the law and capitalizing. Depositing and collecting are the first stage of the process. Users have several options: bring it to WEEECAM's permanent collection points, call a hotline for pick-up at home, or wait for a collector to pass through the neighborhood. A small volume of WEEE can also be collected from businesses for a fee. The second stage is treatment, which involves three processes: depollution (manual removal of hazardous components), semi-automatical shredding and material separation using various physico-chemical treatments, such as buoyancy or magnetic fields. The third and final stage encompasses the packaging and expedition of the different fractions where WEEECAM can also act as a wholesale distributor and sell to second-hand electronic retailers.
