Urban Mining

Urban Mining is starting a new type of crowd funding: not asking for money but for your waste. For every kilo of E-Waste handed in with us, participants receive a share in Urban Mining. Every year a lot of electrical and electronic equipment ends up in incineration facilities, losing valuable resources such as gold, silver but also plastic. Urban Mining operates in a community of upcyclers, making new products out of resources from discarded devices. Urban Mining invites all residents of The Hague to participate. Revenues are shared with all participants. The objective of Urban Mining is to create social jobs in The Hague by dismantling E-Waste and to give a boost to the circular economy by upcycling resources collected in our cities.
