In addition to our expertise in ferrous and non-ferrous metal processing and WEEE recycling, clients are increasingly turning to TXO with their needs for responsible telecoms recycling and precious metal recovery from their excess and outdated telecoms network equipment.

Urban Mining is defined as the process of reclaiming compounds and elements from electronic, often telecoms equipment, that would otherwise go to landfill. In this way TXO and our clients play a significant part in reducing the demand on primary sources of precious metal and the energy needed to produce them, such as mining, which can have adverse environmental consequences including increased CO2 emissions. Aside from benefiting the environment, urban mining of old telecoms equipment can create new revenue streams for your business, by turning unwanted assets into financial gain.


Precious metals in e-waste

By recycling telecoms equipment with TXO, clients can take advantage of clear, transparent reporting and assay results, while benefiting from the economic gains and environmental benefits offered by precious metal recovery. The printed circuit boards used in telecoms equipment are some of the highest yielding electronic boards around in terms of precious metals like Gold (Au)Silver (Ag) and Palladium (Pd). However, it’s not just printed circuit boards that can yield results. There are precious metals in plenty of e-waste materials. Among our specialities is the recovery of precious metals e-waste, this includes recycling of cables (i.e. copper cables, coax cables and so on), processors, computer memory and a variety of other items such as connectors and backplanes from cabinets to maximise client’s income generation.


Responsible telecoms recycling

TXO are committed to the highest standards of responsible telecoms recycling. We ensure that all hazardous and non-hazardous materials are recovered in an environmentally sound manner and provide full traceability on all material containing any hazardous elements in line with current legislation. Our company’s size enables us to leverage relationships with the largest smelters globally and maximise value from telecoms recycling for our clients. As a result, we have become a trusted telecoms recycling and precious metal recovery partner for some of the world’s most respected companies.
