Management of post consume waste
We are strategic allies of your company in the comprehensive management of electronic waste (WEEE), primary batteries, rechargeable batteries and lighting. We have the experience and logistical capacity to help generators meet their collection goals.
Waste from electrical and electronic equipment is waste that, due to its content of heavy metals, plastics and halogenated compounds, must be disposed of in a safe way for the environment. This waste has a great potential for use and with the appropriate treatment and compliance with the safety standards can be reincorporated into the production cycle.
INNOVA is a company with the technical capabilities and environmental licenses approved by the environmental authority for the management of electrical and electronic equipment waste from all lines (white, brown, black, etc.), and its incorporation into the appropriate markets.
How to participate?
Taking care of the environment is very easy, take your waste to the INNOVA points located in shopping centers and universities or deliver it to collection campaigns. If your company requires a personalized service, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lighting waste contains heavy metals and inorganic oxides that are not safe to dispose in conventional landfills. To resolve this situation, lighting post-consumption programs are designed to facilitate compliance with the environmental commitment of lighting producers and marketers.

Innova opera el programa Recopila a través de su empresa hermana ECOTEC, única en el país con la capacidad técnica y para realizar el aprovechamiento de pilas primarias.
Battery waste and batteries are made up of different materials such as oxide, manganese (MnO), zinc (Zn), cadmium (Cd) or lithium (Li) and an alkaline electrolyte (KOH or LiOH) which if is improperly disposed must cause serious damage to ecosystems and water sources.
Recopila is a program designed to collect used batteries, take them to a safe place and prevent them from being thrown in the trash or the environment. For this, Recopila relies on the participation and commitment of consumers for the benefit of the environment.
The process is summarized in three steps:
- Avoid throwing batteries in the trash.
- Deposit them at the collection points or deliver them to INNOVA.
- Tell the people what they do with the used batteries.
INNOVA is the operator of the Recopila program at a national level with a collection and classification service for the different types of batteries and the use of materials, the only one in the country with installed technical capacity and to make use of primary batteries
How to participate?
Participating is very easy, collect the used batteries in a plastic container with a lid, collect the waste in a cool and dry place and when it is full we will collect it, thus helping our planet.
