Communication 2019:
The great spring clean of electronic appliances

Springtime is clean-up time! Clean up your cellar again – there are certain to be a few defective electronic appliances lying around in there, right? Bring us your electronic waste and we will show you why waste is not worthless. To be specific, there are recyclable materials in each appliance that we can bring back into the life cycle by means of recycling.

With this communication measure, we want to inform you why eRecycling is so important and what professional recycling of electronic waste achieves.

Electrical and electronic appliances do not just become waste when they are defective – they contain real treasures. Whether it is the vacuum cleaner, the washing machine or a blender – there are important raw materials such as iron, copper or aluminium in all of these appliances that get lost if not professionally recycled.

Let’s make sure together that these raw materials remain in the cycle of recyclable materials and something new can be made from them.


Thank you for your participation!

You have told us many funny, exciting and surprising stories about why you would like to win a spring cleaning - thank you very much for your participation. We have a lucky winner:

Congratulations dear Cony Flaz!

Voluntary ARF

Commit to professional recycling in Switzerland! Voluntarily pay a retrospective ARF.

Every year, the SENS system loses out on CHF 3 to 4 million in ARFs due to purchases made online or abroad. This weakens the recycling system in Switzerland. Have you purchased an appliance abroad or online, but don’t want to hurt the Swiss recycling system? Pay a CHF 5.00 ARF by text message for professional disposal: send “VRG” to number 488.
