TXO Systems are proud to be a circular economy company. The concepts of the circular economy are gaining traction socially, politically and in business. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation describes the circular economy as one that is,

“…restorative and regenerative by design and aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value at all times.”

At TXO Systems we think this is a superb guiding principle for all that we do since our business model rests on finding re-use and recycling opportunities in the telco and related industries. For us the concepts of the circular economy in terms of product re-use were built into our business model from the start and we have not had to subsequently reverse engineer them in.  As a circular economy company we embrace WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) recycling practices throughout our telecoms network asset management processes.

TXO thinks that the circular economy is a brilliant new way to think about reverse logistics because of the social and business benefits it can deliver. Large corporates such as British Telecom, Verizon, Sprint, Orange and Vodafone also see huge potential and have become members of the CE 100.

 

Why is a circular economy important?

As well as creating new opportunities for growth, a more circular economy will reduce waste, drive greater resource productivity, deliver a more competitive economy, and help reduce the environmental impacts of our production and consumption.

 

In what ways does TXO Systems operate as a circular economy company?

We help companies address their sustainability goals and take control of their resources. Our fully managed end-to-end asset recovery service ensures that our clients recover maximum residual value from their surplus or obsolete equipment – whether through resale, reuse or recycling. Equipment that cannot be reused by the client or resold to other end users is broken down into different WEEE and non-WEEE recycling streams, and any hazardous material is removed.

We currently recycle over 98% of all materials recovered with the aim of achieving a zero waste target and every year our recycling activities keep over 2,400 tonnes of waste material out of landfill and back in commercial use.
