Biffa launches vape takeback scheme

The new takeback scheme will allow consumers to discard of vapes and single use e-cigarettes via bins at various locations around the UK including retail destinations, airports, NHS sites, universities, railway stations, distribution offices and offices. Once dropped off at a collection point, Biffa will take them to an approved authorised treatment facility (AATF) to be dismantled into parts: battery, casing electronics and nicotine pads which are then treated separately. Around 80% of the vape device can be recycled, Biffa said.
