Finally, a solution to recycle your badges!
What to do with badges and cards that we no longer need? Quite often, we throw them in the trash since they are currently not supported by traditional recycling sites.
With Zero Waste Boxes™, take advantage of a practical solution for recycling badges and other plastic cards. So instead of being buried or incinerated, the contents of these boxes will be sorted and transformed into reusable recycled material.
Why recycle your identification accessories?
Recycling makes it possible to partially preserve the planet's resources and reduce the pollution of treated waste.
2 billion tons of waste are produced each year in the world and this figure is constantly increasing. The management of this waste is therefore becoming a major issue at the global level, and this collective awareness has made it possible to highlight the rule of the “Three Rs”: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. This is a set of recommendations aimed at reducing the amount of waste we produce.
The use of recycling boxes allows companies to meet this 3rd rule.
What can be recycled with this Zero Waste Box™?
It makes it possible to recycle the following plastic cards:
- PVC loyalty cards, gift cards and bank cards
- Identity cards and new driving licenses
Remember to destroy any sensitive data that may be on your cards before putting them in the box. In particular, we recommend that you remove the chip and cut the card into pieces.
Including other types of waste may generate additional costs related to the additional selective sorting to be carried out. In particular, please do not include:
- Cardboard cards
- Electronic waste (card reader, etc.)
- Any waste considered hazardous (sharp, flammable, reactive, corrosive, radioactive, toxic, infectious or pathogenic) which poses a risk to people and/or the environment.
- Medical waste, broken glass, batteries, oil paints and aerosols
