Waste recycling is the process consisting in reusing waste to produce a new product. Since one of the main objectives of our activity is to protect the natural environment, we focus on ecological solutions in the area of pollution reduction and, in addition to the disposal of hazardous waste, we also deal with recycling.
Our activity for the environmental protection allows to:
• recover raw materials of metals and plastics so as to reduce the consumption of natural resources;
• provide secondary raw materials for the production of metal and plastic products;
• reduce economic dependence on primary raw materials.
Our company is distinguished by more than twenty years of experience in cable recycling. Metals used for their production are widely used in industry, and the demand for them is constantly growing. The cable recycling process enables the effective recovery of copper and aluminium – their strength means that despite processing, they do not lose their most important qualities. Acquiring these raw materials from secondary sources allows not only to save natural resources, but also results in a significant reduction in pollution generated during the process of metal mining. In order to support the process of copper and aluminium recovery, we also purchase copper cables and aluminium cables, which we then use for recycling. We also recycle cables, such as gel-filled or fibre optic cables.
The Rado company holds all the required permits and licences to pursue waste processing activities for the purpose of environmental compensation, which allows to limit the consumption of natural/primary raw materials and to extend their life.
Material recycling – an efficient method of waste processing In order to process waste in an environmentally safe manner, we use the material recycling method. It is a recycling and recovery process leading to the production of materials suitable for reuse in the production of raw materials with qualities allowing to substitute for a primary raw material.
This is the most eco-friendly and efficient manner of waste management. It makes it possible to reduce the consumption of natural resources and energy necessary for their production and to reduce the level of emissions of harmful compounds into the environment.
In order to reduce the adverse environmental impact, we use modern machines – installations and filters with the high dedusting efficiency, allowing to reduce emissions of substances into the air. Thanks to the use of innovative solutions, dust emissions are reduced by up to 99.9%, which significantly determines the maintenance of the best possible air quality.
Since the inception of the Company, we have been taking measures aimed at expanding our activity and recycling new types of waste. We started with the recycling of cables and telecommunications equipment – today, we also process electrical and electronic waste, brass water meters and multi-material waste. The following years will certainly bring the development of our skills and will allow us to extend the scope of processed waste.
We hold all the required permits and licences to pursue waste processing activities for the purpose of environmental compensation, which allows to limit the consumption of natural/primary raw materials and to extend their life.
We have also obtained the status of a processing plant with regard to processing waste electrical and electronic equipment, mainly from our own process of disassembly of telecommunications and ICT exchanges as well as WEEE received from institutions and individual households.
We conduct our activity pursuant to the following decisions:
• Decision issued by the starost of the Mielec County regarding the permit for the production and processing of waste. Applies to Ławnica.
• Decision issued by the starost of the Mielec County regarding the permit for waste collection. Applies to Ławnica.
• Decision – integrated permit for running waste treatment installations, including processing of waste electrical and electronic equipment, PCBs and telecommunications and power cables in Mielec.
• Entry in the BDO register under number 000003636.
We supervise and implement our production processes based on the implemented and certified Quality Management System according to PN ISO 9001:2015 and the Environmental Management System according to PN EN ISO 14001:2015.
The implementation of the requirements of the above-mentioned standards has been confirmed by the audits carried out by the accredited certification body “Dekra”.
The implementation of the environmental management system makes it possible to carry out environmental protection activities and respond to changes in environmental conditions in line with social and economic needs. It is aimed at reducing the adverse effects of industry and limiting the use of natural resources.
