Have a batch of surplus electronic equipment? We buy batches of unused, redundant or scrapped electronic resources. As well as the good price, 2-RC guarantees speed and convenience; we take the problems off your hands throughout the process.
Sell surplus electronics
Have a batch of surplus hardware, such as servers, computers or laptops? Complete the application form, and we will send you a proposal for purchasing your batch of electronic equipment. You can also approach us to sell batches of consumer electronic equipment. Examples are TVs, Playstations, and other audiovisual equipment. There is even a market for all kinds of obsolete electronic components or electronic waste (WEEE / AEEA scrap), and we can give you a good offer.
Procedure for selling a batch of electronic equipment
Selling a batch of surplus electronics? This is how it works:
- Complete the application form with a description of the batch of electronic equipment, including photos and, for example, an Excel sheet listing the total inventory.
- We will send you a proposal by email.
- If you agree, we will make an appointment to collect the batch of electronic equipment. Thanks to our daily contact with various carriers, this is possible throughout the EU. You can also deliver the batch to our location.
Valuing your batch
No time to list your own inventory? For larger volumes we can send an expert to make a valuation of the batch of electronic equipment that you want to sell. If you wish, we can also discuss the practical settlement at the same time.
Surplus electronics and the circular economy
As an organisation, 2-RC believes in the principle that waste is the new raw material. In all our daily activities, we aim to convert as much electronic waste as possible into reusable materials. In doing so, we align ourselves with the concept of the circular economy and contribute to a sustainable society, as aimed for by governments and many other organisations.
Electronic reuse-oriented recycling
In practice, we primarily focus on ‘reuse-oriented recycling’ of the batches of electronic equipment that we receive. With all products arriving at our workplace, we mainly look to see whether they can be wholly or partly reused. For example, with a defective TV it is often quickly apparent that it cannot be reused as a whole, though many components in the device are still usable. Where necessary, these reusable components are refurbished and then offered as used components, thereby acquiring a new life as a ‘raw material’ in another device.
Reuse brings a higher return
Because we always look to reuse electronic equipment first – which has a lower environmental impact and is less laborious than producing new materials and products – the return from the residual batches is also higher. This allows us to offer more money for your batch of surplus electronic equipment than you would get from the regular recycling industry.
Intrinsic material recovery
Of course, the batches of electronic equipment that we receive also contain products and components that are not reusable. Before these are processed as waste, we first examine the possibility of ‘intrinsic material recovery’; that is to say, we look to see whether another useful application is possible for the material. In this way, numerous resources avoid the waste stream and are reused as the raw material for another type of product. Example of this are furniture makers who create furniture and lamps from scrap, or even artists who use the electrowaste in their works of art.
Processing of waste
Components not eligible for reuse or another useful application are disposed of as waste. These waste streams are properly processed by professional partners with certification for the job (including WEEELABEX certification), working in accordance with the prevailing standards. This means ‘downstream declarations’ can be issued, and the recycling efforts are even expressed in terms of CO2 savings.
