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.

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.

Our focus is on offering a complete service for all WEEE, with a particular focus on the complex but valuable waste arising from the telecommunications and IT industry.

Altech maintains close relationships with the leading refineries and foundries in both the UK and Europe. Because of this, clients can rest assured that their material is recycled and returned directly to the supply chain in the most sustainable and ethical way. In many cases, recycled equipment is processed by us, delivered to a smelter, and inserted back into the supply chain for new production within 8 weeks.
