Recycling initiatives at OTEShops

Recycling initiatives at OTEShops

Since 2006, and more systematically since 2008, we collect, through the placement of special bins in OTEShops (apart from those used for waste electrical and electronic waste) home batteries. In 2010, we collected (from our customers and employees) and forwarded to “AFIS SA” 6,100 kg of home batteries, while the total amount of home batteries collected and forwarded for the period 2006 – 2010 was about 21,500 kg. OTE encourages consumers to participate in electronic equipment recycling through the placement of special bins in OTEShops and public awareness campaigns (brochures and electronic advertisements).Our target for 2011 is, at least, to remain at 2010 levels regarding home batteries.


Since 2009, the label "Please recycle" was introduced to the Conn-x package referring to all contents of the package (box, manual, cd, plastic), as all materials are recyclable.
