You will find at the reception a small sorting cabinet for the following specific waste:
- Batteries and cells (all batteries from devices such as mobile phones, cameras.)
- Energy efficient light bulbs (LED, fluorescent bulbs, neon lights, NOT incandescent and halogen)
- Mobile phones (and other small discarded electrical devices = anything that has a power cord or a plug, or that runs on batteries)
- BRITA filters
- Printer cartridges (everything except toners!) *
- Plastic bottle caps**
* Printer cartridges
EcoTop collects all types of printer cartridges as long as they are from the original brand (OEM) or the EcoTop brand. Please deposit your cartridges delicately to avoid damaging them. Caution: Toner bottles are not cartridges and are not recycled, they are to be treated as waste. The "white-label "generic cartridges and "clones" are also to be considered as waste as well.
**Plastic bottle caps
The non-profit organization "Passe le message à ton Voisine" defends the right of people with disabilities or with reduced mobility (PMR). In order to finance their projects, the NPO "Jeunes et Nature", a member of Mundo-b, takes care of collecting plastic caps which are then bought by the recycling company CAPKA. In addition to recycling plastic and thus contributing to the planet's waste reduction, the money collected helps to finance the purchase of wheelchairs for people with disabilities.

Large electronic appliances
We also collect large electronic equipment (such as computers, keyboards etc.). CF2D, a social company, takes care of the removal of these appliances and their revalorization. The electronic equipment that can be reused will be reconditioned and redistributed mainly in the socio-educational sector. Anything that is not reusable is dismantled and recycled.
