Last year, residents handed over the ASEKOL SK Compliance Scheme almost 5 158 tonnes of electrical and electronic equipment for recycling.
Recycling of 3 750 tonnes of electrical and electronic equipment (TV, monitors and small appliances) in 2014 helped to save a total of 3,52 million litres of crude oil.
Such a quantity of oil would be enough for 1,5 trips around the equator by aircraft.
Take-back resulted in electricity savings of 59 667 MWh, which could keep all the households in Topoľčany running for 12 months.
Take-back resulted in a decrease in production of carbon dioxide by 12 137 kg, as much as would be produced by driving from Bratislava to Košice 184 times.
