Running a business without harm to the environment and following the rules of proper handling of used electrical and electronic equipment are important issues in TIP-TOPOL's operations. That is why we registered in BDO (database on products and packaging and waste management) as an introducer of electrical and electronic equipment and started cooperation with CCR RELECTRA Organization for the Recovery of Electrical and Electronic Equipment. Each of us is a user of electrical and electronic equipment, and thus a potential producer of dangerous waste for people and the environment! That is why it is so important that after the end of its useful life it goes to the right places for safe management.

7. Give the used equipment to the Recovery Organization. In cooperation with the CCR RELECTRA Recovery Organization, we provide collection of electrical and electronic equipment waste that we have placed on the market.
The equipment collected in that way is sent to waste treatment facilities, where the dangerous components will be removed first. The remaining elements will be recovered and recycled. Each device powered by electricity or batteries should be marked with the symbol of a crossed bin.
