Altech is a leading specialist recycler of WEEE and non-ferrous metals.
Altech is a privately-owned company that has grown into one of the leading specialist recyclers of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in the Southeast.
Established over 25 years
With a sophisticated recycling facility processing up to 3000 tonnes a year at our site in Southend-on-Sea, we are well positioned to handle waste electronic equipment from clients of all sizes.
A combination of technological innovation, adherence to best practice environmental standards and responsible recycling mean that all clients can rest assured that their end of life equipment is recycled to the highest standards.
Altech is a fully licensed and accredited ATF (Authorised Treatment Facility) and recycles over 99% of all material received.
At our premises in Southend we segregate and then process a variety of WEEE and metal-bearing products. High value or hazardous elements are removed by trained staff before we mechanically shred items down to liberate the valuable materials contained within. This shredded material is then separated using an array of advanced sorting equipment to generate clean fractions of various commodities.
