Ukraine is beginning to adopt the practice of the EU on the disposal of old devices. Full recycling market gadgets will not appear without new laws
Add in a notebook to Share: mountains of Gold: how much is losing the Ukraine, not recycling gadgets 
Used cell phones can be an additional source of income. Over the past ten years, Ukraine has sold more than 63 million mobile phones and smartphones. Each has a base and precious metals and polymers. The government and manufacturers could make money by processing hundreds of millions of UAH. In Europe there is already a Central policy for the collection and disposal disposal of electronic devices. In Ukraine she is just beginning to emerge. 
Ten years ago, all EU countries have supplemented their legislation with the requirements of Directive 2002/96/EC (WEEE) on waste electrical and electronic equipment. So they blamed the unusable electronic products to its producers. The company must not only deal with the disposal of gadgets, but also free to accept waste equipment from those who bought it.
Ukraine in 2014 signed an Association Agreement with the EU. Ukraine needs to introduce a Directive on electronic waste for three years. But in our law it has not yet appeared. Over the conditions for the collection and recycling of IT-waste, as well as reporting our state still plans to begin to work, reported ЛІГА.net the Ministry of environment.
As it is now is the utilization of
Valid in Ukraine, the waste act does not provide for liability of suppliers of electronics. Based on the explanation of the Ministry, this law applies mainly to waste from the production. That is, if the supplier does not have electronics for our country plants and only imports the gadgets, and bribes with her smooth. 
Recycling old gadgets in Ukraine is carried out only by companies who have learned to make it. Only one computer, for example, contains 5 types of waste, including precious, ferrous and nonferrous metals, polymers and hazardous substances. For disposal of each type needs a separate license.
The recycling market
Suppliers of gadgets is absolutely not ready to recycle your old products. The press service of Samsung ЛІГА.net said that recycling old equipment is not doing. But there are exceptions. In the case of rare necessary there delegate the task to a licensed, the contractor, paying the costs. So does the Chinese manufacturer Huawei. The volume is still small. In July of this year for recycling in Ukraine sent about 400 parts and 15 handsets, the company said.
The cost of the service depends on the number and type of equipment that was going to recycle. The company EcoRecycling, which deals with the utilization of that processing piece of equipment costs a lot of money. The profitability of such an operation is only 5%. 
Recycling, like recycling, consuming process. It includes dismantling, sorting, crushing, extraction of secondary resources and recycling of items that contain hazardous substances.

Processing of the gadgets involved and state-owned enterprises. In Dnipro-VDM said that the process of full recycling of waste containing precious metals takes up to 180 days. So much time is needed for processing one ton of waste. Dnipro-VDM techniques take not only indirectly, but ordinary people wanting to have their old gadget someone safely disposed of. The company sends all the precious metals obtained in the processing in the Treasury of Ukraine.
How is losing Ukraine
According to the company Donbass-VDM to obtain 1 g of gold, you need to process approximately 2 kg of raw material. For example, circuit boards of mobile phones, which contains valuable metal. According to research of online Chip in one Board contains 0,024 g of gold.
ЛІГА.net counted how much gold you can get from one ton of old mobile phones, for example Nokia 3310 (weight - 133g). In ton 7 518 phones. Each of them contains 0,024 g of gold. So in a tonne of phones contains of 180.4 g of gold worth 197 400 UAH.

According to GFK Ukraine, in the period from 2006 to first half of 2016 Ukraine has sold more than 63 million mobile phones. It is about 1 500 kg of gold worth over UAH 1.6 billion. As it can lose the state alone on the old phones. Given the fact that no one obliges suppliers to take care of disposing of gadgets, they are often simply wasted. A foreign company also, if desired, is unlikely to be able to organize the collection and removal of waste for processing at the factories of Europe. As explained in the Ministry of natural resources, their export is possible only if in Ukraine there are no technical possibilities of recycling. But technically we have them. Because the licensee companies are there. 
The buyer electronics little choice. He can go to specialised enterprise and to donate old cell phone and pay for the disposal. There is another option: appliances stores now often offer their customers to sell their old, but not quite hopeless device for a small price. After this, the gadget repaired and sold as used.
