Abstract: This paper discusses how mines that have been adapted for the purposes of recycling carry out the business of extracting precious metals from discarded products. (1) Because industrial waste, its by-products and scrap are the major materials used by the nonferrous metal industry, the proper treatment of waste is now one of the industry’s basic premises, while the setup of an adequate collection system for WEEE is an equally important condition for the recycling of such wastes. (2) For the effective usage of resources, not only the recyclers but the producers, too, will have decisive roles to play in the development of recycling technologies and strategies. (3) To bring about a low-carbon society, the reduction of CO2 by proper collection and recycling must become both the target to aim at and the indicator of whatever success may be achieved. (4) Public policy has to support the domestic recycling refinery of nonferrous metal as the keystone in the infrastructure of recycling and management of waste.
