Circular Place surpasses 45,000 electronic equipment donations

The marketplace driven by ECOTIC reaches this significant figure



Circular Place

the donation marketplace dedicated to the collection of electrical and electronic equipment, has culminated the European Week for Waste Reduction with more than 45,000 products donated. This initiative has brought together 102 committed organizations, which have made a total of 430 donations since the marketplace was created.

The initiative, which recently received the
Sustainability Action 2023
award from
CompromisoRSE
has played a crucial role in the reduction of waste electrical and electronic equipment. Participating producers and distributors have donated 48,778 products, which now have a new life as they are used by non-profit and educational organizations. This approach not only benefits the environment, but also contributes to solidarity projects related to the Circular Economy, addressing issues such as energy poverty and social exclusion.

The best waste is the one that is not generated


Circular Place
maintains the premise that the best waste is waste that is not generated. Joining this platform helps to prevent the destruction of thousands of electrical and electronic devices in perfect condition in Spain every year. In addition, it helps to comply with recent regulations prohibiting the destruction of unsold new products, strengthening the image of companies as sustainable and responsible.

In turn, the initiative guarantees manufacturers the responsible use of donated products by selecting and approving participating organizations in advance. Manufacturers have final control over to whom and when the donation is made.
