Newell’s recycling rate for laptops is the lowest in Ireland, with only one other manufacturer recycling less than 20 per cent.
It is worth noting that the company does not recycle anything from its laptops, as that is only a matter of “management”.
Newell also does not take any laptops back to their original manufacturer, which is the case with many other large electronics companies.
It recycles all of the materials from the electronics and packaging, with the exception of the batteries and other items that have not yet been sold.
However, if a laptop is damaged or damaged by other means, such as a drop, a malfunction or accidental disassembly, then Newell will replace it with a new one, and will collect the costs of that.
This will then be included in the customer’s total bill.
When it comes to batteries, the company also collects the cost of recharging them, and if there is any damage to the battery, the cost will also be included.
In terms of recyclable items, the most common items used in laptops are the hard drives, as well as the internal memory and the external hard drives.
However there are also a number of other recyclables, including solar panels and batteries, and the company will collect those costs from the customer.
In the end, Newell recycles about 80 per cent of its laptops.
The company does this in order to make it more environmentally friendly and recycles a large percentage of the laptops it sells to other companies.
“We recycle our laptops so they are more efficient and recyclably produced,” said Newell General Manager of Corporate Strategy and Communications, Richard Kelly.
“The recycling rate of our laptops is at least as good as that of the most heavily-used laptop manufacturers, so our overall recycling rate is better than that of most other companies.”
