Recipo was founded as Elektronikåtervinning in Sweden in the spring of 2007.

The purpose of the company was to offer an alternative way for electronics manufacturers to meet their producer responsibility. The goal was to offer a cheaper solution for manufacturers, and at the same time act as a responsible player and contribute to the development of the circular economy in the electronics industry.

Over the years, we have amongst other things developed a recycling insurance scheme that secures financing for the collection and recycling of the electrical equipment marketed by the producers affiliated to the collective scheme. We have also been proactive in research on producer responsibility in Sweden. Since September 2017, our company has also been established in Denmark.
