Printed Circuit Boards
AST Recycling offers the highest market-related pricing on Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), based on the composition of the material, the classification of the fractions, and the intrinsic value of the waste stream. PCBs are firstly received/collected, then assessed, categorized and sorted into the different categories before being weighed. Once they have been weighed, payment can be made in cash or via EFT.
One price for all Printed Circuit Boards can be negotiated for regular customers.
We also offer a FREE collection service for quantities bigger than 200 KG.
