After their recovery, these materials will be recycled.

SMA Cables (SubMiniature Version A): This type of coaxial connector has a coupling mechanism that can be screwed. It is an antenna cable that is now very popular in the field of high frequencies.

Generally, it is the cable or antenna that wears out and is therefore recovered, shredded, adequately to give it a new life.

The Universal Serial Bus: Very used for audio exchanges, laptops, tablets, smartphones, it allows the transfer of data, sound, videos. It is a cable whose purpose is to exchange information.

It consists of two ends: one host connected to the device and the other called slave connected to a charger or computer, each has a connector.

This cable is made up of at least four wires inside the rubber that covers them. They will be ground in an eco-responsible manner using specialized machines.

The HDMI Cable: It’s a new high-definition, 100% digital standard, replacing the old Peritel Takes, which are widely used in High Definition televisions.
