Farewell, old fridge: Appliance recycling takes off in Israel
A private company is getting its foot in the market before importers and manufacturers set up syndicates. At least the environment will benefit.
A new industry is set to arise on January 1 when the electronic waste recycling law takes effect. The opening of a multimillion-shekel market providing 500 to 600 new jobs will push Israel another step toward protecting the environment, but it could also drive up the cost of living. Either way, the law will create a new type of business for collecting, sorting, transporting and recycling.
