Printed circuit board & recycling solutions for the telecoms industry

Here at TXO we have considerable expertise in precious metal recovery and returning value from printed circuit boards (also known as PCB recycling).

Why not turn your business’ scrap printed circuit boards into a lucrative revenue stream with our professional printed circuit board recycling solutions? As Europe’s leading recycler of telecoms equipment, our size enables us to leverage relationships with the largest smelters globally to maximise the return for our clients.

Why recycle printed circuit boards?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, one ton of circuit boards contains anywhere from 40 to 800 times the amount of gold than one ton of mined gold ore. But it’s not just gold (Au). Other precious metals such as silver (Ag) and palladium (Pd) can also be recovered from PCB and a range of different computer boards. Some items have very little precious metals whereas others contain a good amount, which makes them very valuable.

PCB recycling ultimately benefits both customers and the environment. The efficient breaking down of scrap circuit boards maximises client’s income generation and reduces the demand on primary sources of precious metal.

Where to recycle scrap circuit boards

It’s important to work with a recycling company that understands the importance of the breaking down process and that is committed to the highest standards of responsible Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) collection, treatment, recovery and disposal.

As an Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF) and Approved Exporter (AE), TXO maintains industry best practices for safe and responsible circuit board recycling. Our facility is frequently inspected by local authorities such as Natural Resource Wales to ensure all activities carried out in line with regulatory legislation.
