At Inter-Metal we started collecting e-scrap materials in 1999. The primary source of the waste was the telecom company MATÁV (today Hungarian Telekom) which at that time begun replacing the old Ericsson crossbar exchanges. Since that Inter-Metal has vastly expanded its circle of suppliers and as a result it handles over 2500 tons e-scrap annually.
