In April we recovered 208,315 Kg of materials. That’s about 30 Tyrannosaurus rex of material recovered last month.

Top 10 items recycled

In April we recycled total of 18,151 items.  Did you know that 1,065 PCs we processed contain just over 170 grams of gold and 800 grams of silver? That is 170 of golden business cards just like the one we were gifted by Mitsubishi Materials last week.

Fan fact: If turned on all 231 vacuum cleaners we recycled in April at the same time, we would have filtered air from a large house at just over 10,000L/second.

Top items refurbished and repurposed

In April we refurbished 3,711 items. Our recovery rate for desktop computers was 91.5% meaning that from 718 computers we received we were able to refurbish and re-purpose 657.
