How does it work ?
When Nexans buys your cable waste, a recycling and pickup agreement is signed between both parties. Full traceability and transparency is ensured before, during and after the recycling process.
We organize all the logistics by providing empty containers for bulk cable waste or trucks for drums, and transportation to the recycling facility.
Once the process to separate and recover the non-ferrous metals from the cable waste is over, your cable scrap value is credited to your bank account
Did you know ?
When the waste is transferred from the original producer […] to one of the natural or legal persons […] for preliminary treatment, the responsibility for carrying out a complete recovery or disposal operation shall not be discharged as a general rule.” (EU directive on waste: DIRECTIVE 2008/98/EC of 19/11/2008).
What does it mean? To give an example, you are a waste producer when you install cable in a building and there are leftovers. Then, even if you sell your cable leftovers to a waste treatment company or scrap dealer, your responsibility is still engaged until you can prove the recycling or disposal of your waste.
As copper and aluminum, two core components of electrical cables, are 100% reusable, Nexans seeks to improve resource efficiency and reduce potential emissions from mining and refining processes by separating and recovering the non-ferrous metals from cable waste.
