RECYCLA Chile S.A. is the first and only E-waste (computers, printers, cell phones, scanners, calculators, etc.) recycling company in Chile, executing a recycling process in an environmentally responsible manner.

RECYCLA is a social entrepreneurship activity, based on the Schwab foundation model (a sister organization of the World Economic Forum), and was born from the OCTANTIS Incubator in Santiago de Chile.

The service that RECYCLA offers is based on the fact that assets and electronic remainders present a potentially dangerous situation for the environment and public health. This treatment consists of recycling reusable raw materials, as well as correctly handling the resulting solid remainders, E-scrap.

In the case of recycling, RECYCLA disarms the equipment by extracting and separating the raw materials, so that they can be later transformed and reused. The return of these raw materials to the production chain contributes directly to the preservation of the non renewable natural resources, reusing the materials contained in the obsolete equipment. In the case of strategic asset destruction, RECYCLA guarantees their complete destruction through the use of specialized machines. The materials that cannot feasibly be reused such as batteries or computer screens are treated in a Hazardous Waste Treatment Center, which is certified to treat such materials.

Standardizing recycling processes globally to harvest valuable components in electrical and electronic scrap (E-scrap), extending the life of products and markets for their reuse, and harmonizing world legislative and policy approaches to e-scrap are prime goals of a new global public-private initiative called Solving the E-Waste Problem. Major high-tech manufacturers, including Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Dell, Ericsson, Philips CE, Nokia and Cisco Systems, join UN organizations, governmental, NGO and academic institutions, along with recycling / refurbishing companies as charter members of the initiative, officially launched in March 2007.

RECYCLA recently was the first runner up in the World Challege 2011 contest. World Challenge 2011 is a competition organised by BBC World News Limited and Newsweek, aimed at finding projects or small businesses from around the world that have shown enterprise and innovation at a grassroots level.
