Gadgets that cannot be repaired nor refurbished still have value, plastics can be sold by weight, non data carrying boards sold for components and in some cases even precious metal extraction. All revenues generated from these activities are again shared with the scheme to reduce cost per claim.

Component parts which are not suitable for repair, refurbishment or sale as product can often be sold by weight. Data-cleared motherboards and the remains of shredded materials can be sold for micro-component recovery and in some cases even precious metal extraction. GRS works with customers to ensure maximum value recovery processes are implemented with commercial yields being shared between both parties.
