Consumers role

As consumers buy more and more products, volumes of discarded Blue Box Materials, batteries, and devices increase. Simple solutions can relieve the pressure.

Effective recycling solutions benefit people, businesses, and the environment – and now they are needed more than ever! Recycling e-waste, batteries, bottles, paper, metal, glass, and other Blue Box Materials is the only way.


Consumer involvement: What can be recycled?

We believe recycling should be simple. The participation of all of us, as consumers or citizens, is crucial to make it happen.

Adopting the right decisions and behaviors to promote a circular economy begins in the shop when we choose our product. Do we consider its energy efficiency? Is the product recyclable? Does it have recycled materials?

Do we take maintenance and care measures to extend our product’s life cycle, including reuse and repair? If there is no option for the product other than recycling, then let’s give it a second life!

As consumers, where do we take our waste to make sure it is sorted, treated, and recycled correctly? Consumers are crucial for proper waste management. Then, H2C does the rest, energizing collection and recycling.

Recycling of waste from A to Z

After being collected, waste is sorted into groups with different characteristics and treatment requirements to be recycled when it cannot be reused. The loop is closed when raw materials are reintroduced into the production system.


Recycling materials for a healthy environment

Recycling saves valuable raw materials and conserves energy. Our planet’s resources are finite. Only increased use of secondary raw materials can stop the linear economy and conserve available resources, moving us to a circular economy.

Our space is finite; landfills poison our environment with hazardous, toxic substances.

A safer and greener environment improves the quality and enjoyment of our lives.

Recycling and reuse means that we consume fewer materials, have less waste to treat, and spend less energy mining and refining new raw materials.


What can be recycled?

We believe recycling should be simple.

However, with so many types of products and materials, and multiple packaging symbols, it is not always easy to distinguish what is recyclable from what isn’t.

To help simplify things, we have assembled an interactive guide of what you can and can’t recycle, with some general information about what happens during recycling and what can be reused.
