Today Closing the Loop signed a deal with T-Mobile Netherlands to tackle the fastest growing waste stream on the planet, electronic waste. T-Mobile is the first telecom operator to take on this problem together with its customers. This an important first step towards a circular telecom industry and CTL is thrilled to have them on board.
Two thirds of all re-used mobile phones eventually end up in countries where there is no responsible recycling infrastructure. In order to ensure that phones from these countries are also safely recycled, T-Mobile works closely with Closing the Loop in the new recycling program.
The cooperation with T-Mobile helps us achieve our ambition to make the mobile phone the first complete waste-free product. We hope others in the sector will follow T-Mobile’s great example and will also participate.
