At ZEOS we are involved in establishing product reuse, especially still working equipment.

This includes:

  • collecting and takeover of still operational devices from individuals and organizations,
  • prepare for reuse – with help of special instructions,
  • handover of appliances, prepared for reuse – through various channels (local reuse centres, prepare for reuse operators, new sales channels),
  • promotion of other collection and takeover locations for still oepreational devices,
  • raising awareness of the importance of reusing appliances (and other products) - through various other own and other channels and activities.

Useful information on reuse


Product reuse

One of the best ways to reduce waste is product reuse. What we no longer need, (especially if it still works), is not necessarily waste. It may be an oppurtunity for someone elese to use the product as it is or with some repairs. 



Each individual has at least 5 kg of still usable products per year, which have so far ended up among the waste dumped in overcrowded landfills, including appliances.

We estimate that even among the collected e-waste, which is intended for recycling, there are still 1-2% of working devices that end up in the material recycling unnecessarily.


Appliances, suitable for reuse

Washing machine, refrigerator, freezer, desktop and laptop computer, consumer electronics, small household appliances, toys, mobile phones, speakers, flat screen TV with remote control, LCD monitors, circular saws, drills, music towers, vacuum cleaners and other suitable appliances on electricity or batteries.
