Many collection schemes have a positive impact on social issues. This positive impact could be beneficial to a company that discards its obsolete electric and electronic equipment, for example to write this in its year report and communicate this via its website. The positive impact on social issues could be:
- the equipment is refurbished and/or further handled by people which have a very small chance on the labour market.
- part of the equipment is handed to families with a low income, for example computers. with this equipment they are brought out of their social isolation.
- part of the equipment is sent to developing countries for support
- equipment is handed to schools, for example computers or tooling machinery for technical schools.
