Recycling of Watches and JewelryIndividuals
Watches are considered WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) products and, as such, they must be recycled.
When purchasing a quartz watch, consumers pay an eco-tax for its recycling. However, watches are currently the only small WEEE products not being recycled. Until Eco Tempo came along!
Since 2010, Eco Tempo has become the only concept in the world that recycles your watches.
Eco Tempo recycles all types of watches: leather, metal, LCD, classic, vintage, smartwatches, and more…
In short, all the watches that you unconsciously kept in your drawers without ever throwing them in the trash.
Now you can dispose of them without fear of harming the environment.
