WorldLoop does not manage any recycling operations itself; all member organizations are independently owned and managed locally. Instead, WorldLoop acts as a catalyst and a network, linking together actors involved in e-waste collection, dismantling, recycling, disposal, transport and logistics, while providing support, best practices and oversight to these facilities.

The WorldLoop model strives for maximum empowerment of local organizations and supports those involved in e-waste collection, dismantling and recycling by providing the following services:

  • Technical assistance: WorldLoop supports member facilities by providing business plan support, training, advice on quality assurance, workers safety and recycling standards implementation, and by sharing knowledge & expertise.
  • International disposal of hazardous fractions: Through strategic partnerships with best in class recyclers in Europe, WorldLoop is able to provide member facilities with a recycling and disposal solution for complex and hazardous fractions that cannot be processed locally in a safe and environmentally sound way.

The nature of the collaboration between WorldLoop and e-waste projects differs case by case depending on the needs and the outcome of a screening process.
