Printed Circuit Boards

FJ Church and Sons have specialised in Weee (Waste electrical and electronic equipment) recycling since the late 1980’s. In line with developing industries electronics recycling is becoming an increasingly important side of our business. Our long standing influence in this market enables us to offer accurate and competitive rates across all grades of electronic equipment from high grade motherboards to telephone systems.

FJ Church and Sons take pride in our long history in the high grade electronics sector. While many see these items as uniform, this is a diverse market with huge variances in value. The main contributor to the value of printed circuit boards is gold. The prices of recycled motherboards boards will follow this precious metal closely. We can offer a toll refining service for customers wishing to proceed with precious metal refining or a telle quelle (as it is) service for those wishing for a collection or delivery and see the instant value of high grade boards.

Lithium-Ion batteries are used in a variety of modern Weee grades, for example: mobile phones, laptops, tablets, digital cameras, electronic cigarettes, handheld game consoles and torches. It is preferable to remove the battery from the item it powers and keep separate.

A lambda sensor is a device that measures the proportion of oxygen. The primary use of a lambda sensor is in the automotive sector. The Lambda sensor makes modern electronic fuel injection and emission control possible.
