Galloo has been responsible for the recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) for many years. A close collaboration with Recupel was established in 2001. This partnership has since been renewed for the sixth time. At Galloo, 50% of all household electrical appliances collected in Belgium are processed, including 50% of all broken washing machines, dryers and stoves and 100% of all televisions and monitors discarded in Belgium.
In France a partnership was established in 2006 with “Ecosystèmes”. Twelve years after the first steps, “Ecosystèmes” appointed the group for the sixth time for the recovery of large white goods, small household waste and LCD and cathode ray tubes screens.
After shredding, everything that is not iron is processed further. Rubbers and foams undergo thermal valorisation, while plastics get a second life at Galloo Plastics. The non-ferrous metals are also separated further.
