Re-Tek are technical advisors to both Wrap, and the Scottish Government’s equivalent Zero Waste Scotland initiative, now called Resource Efficient Scotland (RES).
We are using our extensive expertise in the area of WEEE re-use to work advise on the design and implementation of a number of trials to quantify the commercial and social benefits of re-use over re-cycling at a national and local level.
These trials are looking at product lifecycle analysis and business model sustainability across a wide variety of consumer and business technological products. The data generated will be used to demonstrate the commercial viability of promoting re-use at a domestic level and inform Government policy in this area. It will provide the evidence required for long term government policies and investments in this area.
