VISION ON E-WASTE
Chilenter wishes to integrate sustainable development in each of our activities, contributing to the reduction of electronic waste and its environmental impact, by refurbishing computers and peripherals and to develop a valorization process of computer parts and pieces, ultimately destined for recycling by best in class recyclers, whether domestic or international.
