About Company

LA HORMIGA VERDE is a special employment center dedicated to the correct management of electronic waste (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment - WEEE) , from its collection to its recovery. We are authorized managers of WEEE, under the strictest legality. We create stable employment through workers with disabilities. It is a replicable business model, we want to extend the activity to other locations. We are also going to manage solidarity waste (such as plastic caps), to help social purposes. We will actively collaborate with solidarity campaigns.

What is the problem?

We all have electronic waste or WEEE in our homes and businesses: old devices that are no longer used, or are broken, and we don't know what to do with them. There are more and more of these devices, and the trend is upward:

mobiles, tablets, computers, household appliances, toys, cables, DVD devices, laptops, etc... We have to find a sustainable solution for all this waste, and that it does not end up in landfills.

Because we are different?

Our goals are several: 1) Create a WEEE management model that is scalable and replicable, 2) We generate benefits for social purposes, 3) We create stable employment for disabled people, 4) Offer solutions to better manage our waste and not waste, 5 ) Help build a better future for all.

The WEEE market in Extremadura

Extremadura is deficient in the collection of the most common electronic waste in homes, and it did not reach the state objectives. This is the case of the threshold set for large household appliances (washing machines, refrigerators...), for which the target in 2016 was 3,569 tons and 2,930 were collected. Nor in small household appliances, of which 455 tons were collected without reaching the 458 set by the ministry. Not even in computer equipment, where the goal was 317 tons and only 230 were reached. Not in toys or electronic sports and leisure equipment, of which 19 tons were collected, without reaching the desirable 112 tons.

From LA HORMIGA VERDE we are going to focus our activity locally, close to homes and businesses, with the intention of managing a small part of the market in Extremadura, and having the possibility of growing. We are not ambitious, we are patient and hardworking like ants!
