IVG Disposable Vape Recycling Scheme

IVG Disposable Vape Recycling Scheme

1. Why recycle disposable vapes?

At IVG, we stand firmly behind the UK government's efforts to address the environmental challenges associated with disposable vapes, reflecting our unwavering dedication to sustainability.

Our alignment with these efforts underscores our commitment to fostering a healthier planet for generations to come.

Together, we aim to reduce the significant impact of discarded vaping products, contributing to a healthier environment for future generations.

IVG is proud to introduce the “IVG Disposable Vape Recycling Scheme”, our latest initiative dedicated to promoting the responsible recycling of disposable vapes. Join us in our commitment to sustainability and help pave the way for a cleaner, greener future.

2. How to reduce, recycle and vape responsibly?


In the UK, recycling disposable vapes is vital to combatting the staggering environmental impact of electronic waste. Did you know that over 2.9 million tons of electronic waste are generated annually in the UK alone?


Proper recycling of disposable vapes helps recover valuable materials like lithium-ion batteries, reducing the need for raw resource extraction. By participating in “IVG Disposable Vape Recycling Scheme”, we can collectively divert harmful e-waste from landfills, safeguarding our planet for future generations.

Vape Responsibly:

Dispose responsibly: recycling one vape battery can prevent the release of harmful chemicals equivalent to driving a car for 400 miles.
