Recycling at the highest level. The tecXL Upcycling Edition consists of discarded IT hardware materials that are truly unique through creative and technical skills.

Around 45 million tons of electronic waste are produced worldwide.
And that every year!

This corresponds roughly to the weight of around 1.731 Berlin television towers. By processing used IT hardware, we help reduce the amount of electronic waste. It is our goal to continuously optimize our company, also in terms of sustainability. Without ifs and waste.

Doing something good for the environment often starts with very small steps. We set a good example and want to encourage other companies and show how easy it can be to have a positive effect on the environment and the climate.

Rethink Your Choices | Reconsider your chances

It doesn't always have to be something new. Every purchase in the business as well as private sector should be carefully considered. If new IT is purchased, why not high quality used ones instead of wasting resources through new production?

Refuse single use | No to one-cycle products!

One example among many: in Germany, up to 140.000 coffee-to-go cups are used per hour. We still produce too many superfluous disposable items that end up where they don't belong - in our seas and landscapes. With the purchase of used IT hardware you not only save your own wallet but also help to use the produced devices more than once.

Reduce | Less is more! 

Hand on your heart. Do we really need all of the things we bought? Often purchases are made for convenience that are not necessary.
Get out of the comfort zone → reduce consumption.

Trap | Reuse!

Just throw away usable items that are not needed? No way! Give it to other people or institutions.

We have a tip for everyone who has no idea what to do with their old device after purchasing a tecXL notebook: Donate it to Labdoo.

Labdoo collects decommissioned laptops and tablets. The organization gives children all over the world access to IT and education. All information: https://www.labdoo.org/de/LabdooD

Refurbish | Processing of reusable products

Our specialty. Preparation of used IT to the highest degree. With a good six-digit number of refurbished devices per year, we can really say that we are diligent refurbishers. By the way, tecXL stands for the highest quality refurbished business devices from Lenovo, HP, Dell and Fujitsu.

Repair | Junk or not?

The car is a good example of this. In the event of damage, one does not immediately think of buying a new one. The reason for this is the high investment costs. So why not invest in what you already have instead of buying a new one?

With a refurbished notebook from tecXL, the products have a second life cycle and companies receive a business-class device at the price of an entry-level model. So repairs can be worthwhile, as many repair cafés across Germany show.

Repurpose | Recycling

tecXL Upcycling Edition. Through our project we show how easy it is to conjure up real unique items even from supposed junk. Thereby we contribute creatively to environmental protection.

Recycle | When nothing works: recycling!

Why it is so important to separate rubbish and, above all, to properly dispose of electronic waste, can be seen in developing countries.

But not only through professional disposal, but also by purchasing a refurbished tecXL device, you are making a significant contribution to maintaining the ecosystem.

Driven by these three properties, the Schweinfurt Technology Center not only produces refurbished IT hardware but also creates real eye-catchers and unique items from non-reusable old materials.

We would like to go the mile further and show that we not only bring functional material into the second life cycle, but can even breathe a real new life into e-waste with creativity.
